Joe Strickland ( Conway Tearle ), a civil engineer, has fallen to the level of living off Bessie Hayes ( Agnes Ayres ), a bootlegger. Bessie believes Joe is trying to steal their savings, and they decide to part. She opens a manicuring establishment and marries wealthy Harvey Larkin ( Robert Ober ); shortly after their marriage, Harvey begins to neglect Bessie for the company of others. Joe saves society girl Marion Winslow ( Alyce Mills ) from drowning, reforms himself, and marries Marion. Bessie is blackmailed by Frank Bowman ( Otto Matieson ), a former confederate, and goes to Joe for help. Marion becomes jealous and threatens divorce. Harvey casts Bessie out when she confesses her past. She straightens matters out between Joe and Marion, but realizing that she, a woman, will never be forgiven for her past sins, she commits suicide.
This 1925 silent film was based on the novel The Lucky Serum by Gouverneur Morris, produced by Tiffany Film Corporation starring Conway Tearle and Agnes Ayres. As with many silent films the survival status of Morals for Men is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be lost.
