~Welcome Stranger~
~Plot Synopsis~
Elderly Isadore Solomon (Dore Davidson) arrives in the small New England town of Valley Falls, but is
run out of the hotel because he is Jewish. Also driven out is Mary Clark (Florence Vidor), who arrives the
same night. They are taken in by Clem Beemis, a handyman and electrician (William V. Mong). Beemis
wants to build an electrical plant for the town, and he gets Solomon involved in his plans. The leading
citizens oppose it, but then Ned Tyler (Lloyd Hughes), son of the town banker (Fred J. Butler), falls in love
with Mary. They lease the falls in Mary's name, but the citizen's try to dig up dirt on Mary's past. In spite
of all the battles, the underdogs emerge victorious, and Valley Falls benefits from the new plant. Ned
weds Mary, and the townsfolk give Solomon a well-deserved apology.
