Christine Bleeker ( Betty Compson ), educated by her wealthy brother-in-law, William Hollins ( Hardee Kirkland ), plans to marry Ralph Lincourt ( Mahlon Hamilton ) when he is divorced. He, however, is equally pursued by Nancy Barron ( Marcia Manon ), whom Christine dislikes. Ned Klegg ( Arnold Gray ) loves Barbara ( Leatrice Joy ), a social secretary, and resents the attention paid her by Edward Barron ( Snitz Edwards ), Nancy's elderly husband. Nell Martin ( Lucille Hutton ), a servant in the Hollins home, is in love with the gardener but is persecuted by the butler. Anthony Mulvain ( Robert Ellis ), an aviator, and his mechanic, Le Prim, arrive; and the latter absconds with Nancy in an auto, pursued by Mulvain and Christine, who force him to release her. Christine announces her engagement to Mulvain, who declares he is a poor man. In the resulting commotion, it transpires that Nell, threatened with exposure, has drowned herself. The shock brings a change of emotion, Barbara rejects Barron and accepts Klegg, and Christine accepts Mulvain, content to share his poverty.
This 1921 silent romance/drama was produced by the Mayflower Photoplay Company and starred Betty Compson, Leatrice Joy, Robert Ellis along with John Gilbert who had a small part playing a gardener. Sadly this film now remains a lost silent.
