THE STORY: Wilfred Tasbinder, a romantically minded tramp, finds a birth certificate for Oliver Erwenter, indicating that its owner is 77 years old. Wilfred decides to impersonate Erwenter and enter a home for the aged. Being a fellow of rich imagination, he takes it upon himself to help the inmates by putting on a bazaar and showing each of them that one is only as old as he feels. Case in point, the attractive Miss Tripp, in charge of the home and more or less in love with the stuffy Reverend Watson, enters a romance with Erwenter and discovers the true meaning of passion. All goes well until Erwenter is exposed by his tramp companion, Emmett. He and Emmett, having appropriated the necessary equipment for the bazaar from neighboring institutions, are in danger of arrest, but Erwenter persuades his victims that the bazaar is a worthwhile cause and ends up the object of universal praise. Erwenter again feels the call of the road and leaves the home, having finally taught the Reverend to show Miss Tripp how deeply he loves her. THE SILVER WHISTLE is a sweet and funny comedy guaranteed to please all audiences.
