Virginia Pitman's (Katherine MacDonald) mother ( Lillian Lawrence ) does not want to see her suffer the same poverty she went through, and prods her to accept the proposal of a wealthy but elderly Colonel Jim Singleton (Charles K. French). Virginia, however, is not interested and Singleton insults her at a large society party. Her brother, Robert (Tom Forman ) shoots the man and finds himself on trial for murder. Because she wants to hire a good attorney for Robert, Virginia is now more willing to find a rich mate, and she and her mother travel South. They find another prospect, Clayborne Gordon (Nigel Barrie), but he breaks off the engagement when he hears of the scandal. The girl, however, finds true love with a poor race car driver, Cole Hawkins (Bryant Washburn). A thrilling climax ensues, including a car flying over a cliff, Hawkins finally reveals that he's actually one of the wealthiest men in the state, and a happy ending prevails for all.
This 1922 silent melodrama was produced by B.P. Schulberg Productions, with filming locations at the Hotel Del Monte, Monterey, California. Sadly, this film may now be a lost silent.
