Important note: This is not a film review. It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
After robbing a wealthy banker, who dies of shock during the holdup, Hawk Chovinski ( Walter McGrail ) decides to desert his half sister, Poppy Brown ( Adele De Garde ), and become a gentleman. He learns deportment from a dancing teacher and then enters high society, where he meets Yolande Cowles ( Leah Baird ), the banker's daughter. Immediately infatuated with Hawk, about whom she knows nothing, Yolande breaks off her relationship with Martin Drake ( Don Cameron ), a settlement worker, and makes plans to marry her new suitor. Just before the wedding, however, Poppy locates Yolande, and tells her everything about Hawk's past. When she realizes that her fiancé is the man responsible for her father's death, Yolande has Hawk arrested by the authorities, and then returns to Martin, whom she soon marries.
