| The Young and the Reckless
Alcoholic playboy Wallace MacDonald (as Bruce Armstrong) would like to sober up and become more responsible, after a drinking accident causes him to cripple little brother Pat Moore (as Jimmy Armstrong). Still, the lure of liquor makes him to sneak drinks at home, and go out partying with carefree showgirl Clara Bow (as Marilyn Merrill). He's promised Ms. Bow he'll quit drinking and gambling. Further complicating Mr. MacDonald's life are the bad checks he's been accumulating. Nasty Stuart Holmes (as Tom Canfield) and Tom Santschi (as "Big Joe" Snead) force MacDonald to join their diamond smuggling racket, in lieu of payment.

Bow would like to help MacDonald, but finds herself similarly under Tom's thumb. An accidental killing puts the couple in additional dire straits. Soon, crippled brother Moore is forced into the spotlight. Reminded of his "Boy Scout" oath, young Moore is asked to testify against wayward MacDonald. Star Wallace MacDonald and reliable scene-stealers like Clara Bow, Stuart Holmes, and Tom Santschi are no match for young Pat Moore, who is handed the film on a silver platter, and wisely accepts. Moore's limping "Boy Scout" takes "The Primrose Path" all the way to the bank.
