Working in a millinery shop in a small town, Leona Williard ( Carmel Myers ) dreams of going to New York and marrying a wealthy man. An inheritance of five thousand dollars turns her dream into a reality, and Leona goes to the city where she meets Mrs. Geraldine De Forest ( Elsa Lorimer ), an old friend of her mother's who introduces Leona to a wealthy widower named Frazer Boynton ( Boyd Irwin ). Boynton proposes to the girl, but Leona refuses because she is in love with Jasper Halroyd ( Thomas Chatterton ). Mrs. De Forest, who is secretly in love with Jasper, lies to Leona that he is her lover. Horrified, Leona accepts Boynton's proposal, but later, after Jasper saves Leona from drowning, she realizes that she still loves him. Confused, Leona determines to return home, even though she has discovered Mrs. De Forest's lie. Jasper follows and is waiting on the platform to declare his love when Leona's train arrives at her home town.
This 1920 silent drama was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company with some on location filming in Santa Barbara, California. Starring the beautiful silent screen actress Carmel Myers, The Gilded Dream is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
