After wealthy young socialite Myra Hastings ( Eileen Percy ) ensnares her latest victim, Kent Whitney ( Emory Johnson ), the son of an "oil can millionaire," Bob Harkness ( Evans Kirk ), one of her rejected suitors, warns Kent of Myra's flirtatious and fickle nature. Together they concoct a scheme to teach her a lesson. Kent invites Myra home to meet his family, and she goes, expecting to find an ambiance of elegance and refinement. Instead, she is greeted by Kent's eccentric father, who affronts her with crude jokes; Kent's mother is introduced reclining on a couch, surrounded by yapping dogs. Upon discovering that the evening was a ruse, Myra decides to retaliate. She hires a fake minister, pretends to marry Kent and then deserts him, leaving behind a message explaining that the ceremony was a farce. Kent pursues Myra and persuades her that a real marriage is in order.
This 1920 silent comedy/drama was produced by the Fox Film Corporation, starring Eileen Percy and Emory Johnson. The status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
