Cast & Crew
J. Barney Sherry
Suspecting that his California farmland is rich in oil, transplanted Irishman Pat Dugan spends his last penny on prospecting and is richly rewarded when his oil shaft finally gushes. Although Pat's son Jimmie is happy on their modest farm, the elder Dugan insists that his newly wealthy family assume its place in society and sends Jimmie to an exclusive Eastern college. On his first day, Jimmie gets involved in a fight and departs for Long Island, where he opens a flower shop with an Italian named Garbaldi. When Jimmie delivers some shrubs to Lady Blessington's estate, he meets and falls in love with her pretty but poor goddaughter, Joyce Clifton. He also meets his parents, who, hoping to find their son, have come East and rented the adjoining estate. When Pat threatens to disinherit Jimmie unless he marries into society, the young man ignores him and quietly marries Joyce. She soon earns a place in the stubborn old Irishman's heart, however, which greatly pleases his equally stubborn son.
