The Rainbow Man
Cast & Crew
Rainbow Ryan, a minstrel performer, adopts Billy Ryan, the son of an acrobat friend who is killed while performing on stage. Playing in a small town, Rainbow falls in love with Mary Land, the daughter of a strict hotelkeeper who disapproves of all theatrical people. Rainbow moves on with the show, and Mary belatedly discovers that Billy is the child of her dead sister. Mary goes after Rainbow, and he sends Billy back home with her, renouncing his love for her for fear of going against her father's command that she have nothing to do with entertainers. The minstrel show is booked into a small town near Mary's, however, and Billy runs away to see Rainbow. Mary follows, and she and Rainbow are reunited.
