In New York after the Great Depression, the spoiled Socialites Irene Bullock and her sister Cornelia Bullock are doing a scavenger hunt where the winner is the one who first brings a "forgotten man". They go to the city garbage dump and Cornelia offers the abandoned Godfrey Smith five dollars to go to the Wardolf Hotel with her and her companion. The man shoves her in the bin and Cornelia leaves the dump with her companion. Irene however talks to Godfrey that she wanted to beat Cornelia and he accepts to go with her to win the prize. Irene offers Godfrey the position of a butler and tells her parents Alexander and Angelica Bullock that she hired Godfrey to work for her dysfunctional family in her mansion. Irene has a crush on Godfrey and protects him while Cornelia hates him and wants to do him harm. During a party at Bullock's house, Harvard graduate Tommy Gray recognizes Godfrey and welcomes him. But the butler asks him to keep the secret of his past, and plans a meeting in the restaurant to explain what happens.
