Synopsis

Max Ginsberg, an elderly Jew, and his little Irish partner, Tim Kelly, have made their fortune in rags but lose it by investing in Vista Copper and return to the junk business. They take in Mary Riley, an impoverished young girl, as a boarder and later as a partner. Mary falls in love with Nathan Burke, the son of wealthy parents. Nathan's mother, however, disapproves of Mary. The Burke family fortune suffers a setback, but Tim saves the day with the Vista Copper stock, and all ends well for Mary and Nathan.
