Forced to abandon his ancestral castle, William Tudor ( Joseph J. Dowling ) accompanies his granddaughter Irene ( Mary Philbin ) to London, while millionaire John Kershaw ( De Witt Jennings ) buys the castle for his son, Christopher "Kit " Kershaw ( Freeman Wood ). Irene joins the Gaiety Theatre company, hoping that her lover, Owen ( William Haines ), who has gone to Africa, will return and purchase the castle from the Kershaws. Mistakenly hearing of his death, she accepts the attentions of Christopher, who intercepts a message from Owen. On their wedding night, Owen appears, and following Kit's death, they are reunited and the Tudor castle is restored to its heir.
This 1924 silent melodrama was based from the short story "The Inheritors" by Ida Alexa Ross Wylie, produced by the Universal Pictures Corporation, starring Mary Philbin and William Haines. Sadly the survival status of The Gaiety Girl is now listed as a lost silent film.
