It is a shocking illustration of the very principle that Old Timer is propounding: New York is a city of strangers, and that is its strength. This man is unknown to Old Timer, and he will prove irrelevant to the plot, but the film finds him sufficiently worthy of attention to follow, if only for a moment.
