Day In the Sun
Day In the Sun
Charlie, an easy-going, impractical young man, is out of a job; his good-heartedness and deep-seated belief that telling the truth always pays, seen to have brought him nothing but debts and unhappiness! Suddenly Charlie is lifted into the limelight of national celebrity after he reading about a poor Italian who is on trial for his life. Charlie remembers having seen the Italian in the library on the night of the murder, and it looks as though his passion for truth and sincerity has at last brought him fame and success. He is besieged by the press, and innocently enjoys every minute of it. Certain members of his family, however, are anxious to have their day in the sun, decide that they will go into court and discredit Charlie. He sticks to his story and to his belief in the ultimate power of truth, and in the end not only saves the prisoner's life, but actually discovers the real culprit.
