~Abysmal Brute~
~Plot Synopsis~
Reared in the California mountains by his father, an ex-prizefighter, Pat Glendon shows great skill and
strength but is terribly shy of women. When he finally enters competition in San Francisco, he achieves
success and the title "The Abysmal Brute." One day he rescues a man from drowning, meets socialite
Maude Sangster as a result, and falls in love with her at first sight. He keeps her in ignorance of his
profession, and though Pat is handicapped by his lack of knowledge of social niceties, they see each
other often. When Maude does learn of Pat's prizefighting she repudiates him, but Pat is persistent and
finally wins her from his rival.
