Love Triangle Scheme
14 September 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

New York bank teller Conrad Nagel (as John Hanson) is doing well enough to send for Swedish sweetheart Betty Compson (as Helga Larson). They plan to marry when Mr. Nagel can afford to buy a house. Until then, she lives in the same boardinghouse. Because Nagel spends evenings studying to become a lawyer, he arranges for co-worker Robert Ames (as Phil Wilson) to take Ms. Compson out regularly, to have fun. She is bored watching Nagel study his law books. For some reason, Nagel doesn't seem to know his pal is interested in women. Or, maybe he sees Mr. Ames admiring other women, but trusts his friend won't take advantage of Compson. You won't be surprised when Ames and Compson hook up. Then happenstance provides Nagel with a way to win her back. Five years later, the love triangle spins to a resolution.
