Wealth turns certain members of the Lamberts to corruption and vice, John ( Willard Louis ), the dissolute father, gets entangled with an unscrupulous gold digger named Estelle ( Jane Winton ), his son Lance ( Harold Goodwin ), an architect, loses ground in his profession through drinking, and Becky ( Virginia Lee Corbin ), the reckless flapper daughter, is infatuated with Nathan Peck ( John Patrick ), a vitiated millionaire. Margaret ( Helene Costello ), the mother, who has lost her beauty through devotion to her household, realizes the futility of the sacrifice and leaves home with Mary ( Irene Rich ), her youngest and unspoiled daughter, whose aversion to men is expressed in her mannish attire. Margaret becomes an interior decorator in Jim Donaldson's ( Holmes Herbert ) office and soon regains her dignified womanly beauty. Meanwhile, Lance denounces his father for inviting disreputable people home and gets a job through his mother's influence. Margaret refuses John's pleas to return, and with Jim she saves Becky from suicide, Mary falls under the charms of Dick ( Robert Brower ), Jim's brother, and the family is united again with Jim at its head.
This lost silent drama was produced by Warner Brothers and featured popular actor of the 1920s, Willard Louis, who sadly died soon after the completion of this film.
