  • Overview
    Luke Frugal, after leading the life of a prodigal, has become a recipient of his brother's charity. As such, he hypocritically assumes the character of a submissive and smooth-tongued dependent.... But he is suddenly subjected to the crucial test of the inheritance of all the wealth of his brother, who has pretended retirement to a monastery. He is now at once transformed into a monster of selfish avarice.... In the end, his brief dream of wealth and power of course collapses; while the trials to which they have been subjected effectually cure his brother's wife (the City Madam) and her daughters of their ridiculous pride and pretensions.
