Survives Incomplete

Wealthy Mark Hadley ( Wilfred Lucas ) drifts from his old-fashioned wife into a secret affair with Lila Millas ( Clara Bow ), a pretty French girl. At the same time, he advises his daughter, Marjory ( Marie Prevost ), to break her ties with Kent Merrill ( Monte Blue ), whom he calls a "chippy-chasing young rounder." Marjory visits Lila, who was her school friend in Paris, and is shocked to find her father there. She upbraids him and, heedless of his previous advice, goes with Merrill to his summer place. En route, they are sobered by an automobile accident, and they get married. A repentant Hadley confesses his misdeeds to his wife and is forgiven.

This 1924 silent comedy/romance was based on a story by Caleb Proctor and starred Marie Prevost, Monte Blue and an early appearance by Clara Bow who plays a supporting role. An incomplete print of the film is housed at the Library of Congress with sadly two of the six reels missing.
