THE NUT  (1921):

Charlie loves Estrell, who has a theory that if the rich would take a number of poor children into their homes each day, the environment in the homes would cause children to grow up properly and become good citizens. Charley, in an attempt to impress his nutty girlfriend, organizes a party to convince rich people to participate in this scheme, but it unsurprisingly turns into a fiasco. Charlie ends up spending the night at a police station and meets a crook, who pretends to be a member of the very influential Vanderbrook family. To regain Estrell's favor --- and to prove he's as batty as she is --- Charlie, without bothering to ask why a Vanderbilt is sitting in a common prison, arranges a meeting with him and other phonies, who are all burglars and gamblers. Can't wait to see the "Happy Ending" in this one!
