~A Self-Made Failure~
1924
~Plot Synopsis~
Lloyd Hamilton plays the title character in this light comedy. The failure, also known as Breezy, has been
given custody of Sonny (Ben Alexander), because his dying father thought he had become a successful
businessman. Breezy is actually a tramp, and he takes Sonny and his dog on his travels. They wind up in
Sulphur Springs, where Cyrus (Sam DeGrasse), who runs the health resort, mistakes Breezy for the new
medical advisor. Sonny stays with kindly Grandma Neal (perennial kindly old lady Mary Carr), and Breezy
discovers that the resort actually belongs to her -- Cyrus is a crook who has swindled her out of it. Breezy
and Sonny help Grandma Neal get her resort back. Sonny convinces Breezy to stay behind -- his dog has
had puppies, so it's time to put down roots. Patsy Ruth Miller and Matt Moore play the incidental love
interests.
