SYNOPSIS

When Harvard expels Algernon DuPont, as punishment his millionaire father throws him out of the family mansion. Algernon drives out West with his butler, and along the way, despite his "blue blood," he proves that he has a fair amount of grit when he wins two hundred dollars by knocking out a professional fighter.
