A Very Good Young Man 1919 IMDb


As described in a film magazine, LeRoy Sylvester (Washburn), a very good young man, is engaged to Ruth Douglas (Chadwick), whose well meaning sister Kitty (Faye) points out to her the fact that no young man so exemplary in his habits before marriage can be humanly expected to continue his model behavior after it. Ruth informs Leroy of his unsuspected shortcoming and he sets out to prove he is a villain of the deepest dye. Osprey Bacchus (Eddy), the dowdy daughter of a lady undertaker, is pressed into service as his companion on his first wild evening. He seeks to bring himself into proper disrepute by flirting with a fascinating lady met at the roof garden, posing as the thief who stole some valuable jewels that have disappeared, resisting an officer, and other escapades, but all in vain. Circumstance saves him despite his best efforts, and Ruth finally consents to marry him despite his lily white reputation.
