Storyline

Carter loves from afar. Growing desperate, he decides to throw himself in front of his sweetheart's automobile, and is knocked down and loses his front teeth. The girl takes him to her home. Her father, a fiery Southern doctor, objects, but hospitality triumphs. Carter pretends to be very ill. He finally gets better, but feigns a limp and hobbles around with crutches. The doctor orders Carter and the girl to take frequent rides. One day they are secretly married. Carter cannot get up enough courage to tell his new father-in-law, and has considerable difficulty in seeing his wife. One night her father catches him in her room. Carter pretends to be walking in his sleep and the doctor forces him back to bed. The father finds him, learns of the marriage and also that Carter is the son of a southern colonel. This clears the atmosphere and the young people finally get the family blessing. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
