Cast & Crew
Two African-American country boys with dancing talent are discovered by a theater magnate, who persuades them to leave the farm and try their luck on the stage. Initially seized by stage fright, the boys eventually become great successes. Back home, however, their parents, who are happy for their sons' good fortune, cannot help but feel neglected by them. At Christmas, the parents try to be merry, but miss their absent sons very much. Just then, the boys return home, full of good cheer for the holiday. The elder son, who has fallen in love with the theater manager's daughter, introduces his parents to his new bride and everyone is joyful.
Leigh Whipper, reviewing the film in Billboard, called it "by far the best negro picture it has been my fortune to see" and commented, "I am very much of the opinion it will pave the way for a higher standard of films among us. It was entirely free from propaganda, totally devoid of any offensive features, and carried a smile and a tear with grace thruout."
