FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P6768~Holbrook Blinn~holbrookblinn]] repeated his stage role in this feature-length adaptation of the Broadway hit The Boss. In the early scenes, [[Performer~P6768~Blinn~holbrookblinn]] is hardly bosslike: A waterfront derelict, his only "assets" are his fists. Putting his pugilistic skills to practical use, [[Performer~P6768~Blinn~holbrookblinn]] becomes a prizefighter, accumulating a fortune and purchasing a prosperous saloon in the process. He then buys his way into a freight-contracting business, and before long he's one of the most powerful businessmen in town. His next step is to marry into society, which he does by marching down the aisle with pretty heiress [[Performer~P7987~Alice Brady~alicebrady]]. Unfortunately, for "the boss," [[Performer~P7987~Brady~alicebrady]]'s brother, a union activist, calls a strike which brings the "hero's" despotic control of the waterfront to a screeching halt. Only when reduced to his former pauper status does [[Performer~P6768~Blinn~holbrookblinn]] realize that he's genuinely in love with [[Performer~P7987~Brady~alicebrady]], who has stood by him through thick and thin. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
