Freckle-faced Wesley Barry was one of the most popular juvenile stars of the 1920s. In The Fighting Cub, Barry plays Thomas Patrick O'Toole, a copy boy who aspires to be an ace reporter. He takes the first step in this direction when he secures an interview with a beloved philanthropist (George Fawcett). Taking a liking to the old coot, O'Toole is in for a jolt when he learns that the philanthropist is actually the leader of a criminal gang. The script has its cake and eats it too by contriving a change of heart for the gang leader, obliging O'Toole to keep his discovery a secret. Fighting Cub was written by Adele Buffington, better known for her scores of western-movie screenplays; the film's leading lady was Mildred Harris, better known as the first Mrs. Charlie Chaplin.
