Heartache for Heartache, Payment in Full

The decade of the 1920’s is remembered as the ‘Roaring Twenties’ because America and the world were growing and businessmen were earning riches that were unheard of. The growing class of wealthy people was spending that money as fast as it was coming in. Nightclubs were jammed every evening, grand mansions were being built, and the flow of money seemed to be never ending. Automobiles were getting more popular, steel plants were providing the building blocks for railroads, bridges, and even buildings that could touch the sky. It seemed that the good times would continue forever.

Our adventure begins in June of 1929, and our leading little boy, Master Laurence, has a private tutor to home-school him, and everything a little boy could dream of, and more.

His private tutor takes him to an exclusive nightclub for children every day. This nightclub is just for wealthy children, serving ice cream sundaes, with little children stage shows, and toys of every description to pamper the wealthy. Yes, thanks to his wealthy grandfather, Laurie has everything he wants, . . . . Except a mother.

Several years ago grandfather’s daughter ran away from the life of the wealthy and got married, and had little Laurie. Her husband deserted her, and without any funds, she and little Laurie went back home to Morley, hoping that he would help them. Grandfather embraces his grandson and promises to raise him in the luxury that he deserves, but in exchange he forces the little boy’s mother to leave and never return, and never see her son again.

On Tuesday, October 29, 1929, a few months after wealthy Grandpa Morley takes in little Laurie, the New York Stock market crashed, and over the following months the world would be plunged into the worst economic depression it had ever seen. Wealthy men who suddenly lost every penny were jumping from tall office building windows to end their life. It was a disaster far larger than any that has occurred before or since.

Fortunes of many of the wealthy families disappeared quickly, and the lifestyles of the rich and famous suddenly changed. Would life be worth living for young Master Laurence and his grandfather, after all their wealth is gone? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
