|Plot||Robert Randall, a reporter, writing a play when he should be at his work, gets himself in the habit of arriving at the office late and in consequence finds himself out of work. In the meantime, Necia, his sweetheart, shows preference for his rival, Desmond, but he finds consolation in thinking of Mary Rollins, the little waitress at the restaurant where he eats. Receiving his pay from the newspaper office, he spends it all in food, which he takes to his room, and locking himself in, works until he finishes his play. After considerable trouble he finds a theatrical manager who gives his manuscript consideration. Finding himself hungry, he goes to his former eating place, but not having money, he cannot get food. The little waitress, Mary, who has been friendly to him, would help, but the manager refuses. After leaving the restaurant, he is so weak from lack of food that he can only stagger to a seat in a park nearby, where he is seen by Mary. She succeeds in sending something to eat to him, for which he is very grateful and writes a message of thanks to her. Later he gets a chance to help her and by so doing is knocked down and so badly injured as to require medical treatment and detention in a hospital for about three weeks. In the meantime his play is accepted and makes a great sensation. Through an incident in the theatrical office, his address is destroyed and he does not know the success of his play or of its acceptance until the day of his leaving the hospital, when he sees a notice in the paper. This brings prosperous times to him and his prosperity. Mary, who has been in constant attendance with him at the hospital, is not forgotten. With his success also comes Necia, but this time it is his turn to have the choice and it falls to Mary, whom Robert has learned to love.... search for A Modern Free-Lance on IMDb|
