The son of a factory owner must view life from the other side when he loses his right to the business.
“Triumph is a surprise. It lacks the terrific ostentation, the bizarre blather of Male and Female, Fool’s Paradise, and the rest. Indeed it seems that a miracle has come to pass: Cecil B. DeMille has lost his fondness for putting on the dog.”
– Robert Sherwood, Life Magazine, May 22, 1924
