Horace Annesley Vachell's novel Quinney's was adapted for the screen by John Longden, who also played the titular role. Though he tries to be a good husband and father, Joe Quinney (Longden) is more comfortable with material possessions than with people. He is especially fond of antiques -- and never mind if they're "fakes," so long as they look good. Quinney's wife Susan (Alma Taylor), tired of being surrounded by ersatz artifacts, urges her husband to seek out "the real thing." He does and soon becomes the foremost antique dealer in the city. His livelihood is threatened by the return of his crooked ex-partner Tomlin (Sam Bosco), who endeavors to use Quinney's shop as a clearing house for a line of phony antique china and furniture -- and that's just one of the various plot strands. Quinney's ends on a happy note, a major departure from the original novel.
