Plot: Aldolpho Rollo, a struggling screenwriter-filmmaker longing for international success, lives in a run-down building where he can barely make his rent. When his landlords menace him with foreboding promises to do him bodily harm, they frighten the jejune artist into taking charge of his financial situation. With no monetary recourse, Aldolpho has to stop nursing his 500-page screeplay and actually try selling it. Much to his surprise, Joe, a seemingly wealthy eccentric older gentleman, offers Aldolpho $1,000 cash for the work. Joe quickly becomes Aldolpho's benevolent guardian, instilling him with confidence, helping him woo dreamgirl Angelica, and nurturing his artistic goals. But the would-be artist and his benefactor soon clash over the content of the film, and it takes a tragedy before Aldolpho can begin to understand Joe's point-of-view and create the work he's dreamed of.
