"Saw a commercial with Beau Bridges and it reminded me of a movie scene I saw as a kid:

Beau is a young man. In the scene he is walking the streets of a large city, possibly Chicago because I think I recall there being an elevated train. He is weak and delirious from hunger. He sees a little girl (who I seem to recall being dressed in the style of the late 1800's (big hat, pouffy dress). The girl is holding an ice cream cone, but she is busy looking away. Beau weakly lunges at the cone from behind the girl and begins to eat it. The girl's father pushes Beau away, he stumbles into the street and passes out.

I think he wakes up in a large bed in a mansion's bedroom.

That's it.

Thanks.

I posted this for those who were still wondering. ;)
