Pudd'nhead Wilson is a lost Universal Pictures film from 1916. It stars Tommy Meigha, a popular actor of the time, as Tom Driscoll and Alan Hale Senior as Chambers. Lois Wilson stars as the lovely Rowena Tilton, who falls in love with Chambers.


The slave Roxanna switches her own baby with young Tom Driscoll, the son of a wealthy man. As a result , the fake Tom Driscoll grows into a spoiled brat who murders his uncle and frames his valet, Chambers for the crime on learning he has fallen in love with the lovely Rowena Tilton. Pudd'nhead Wilson, the attorney, takes the case and - using fingerprints - proves that Chambers is actually the rightful heir and the real Tom Driscoll.
