Storyline

Bridget O'Hoolihan, a domestic in the employ of a wealthy family, is in love with Patrick Callahan, a policeman. Love runs smoothly until one day she receives a letter informing her that she has fallen heir to a small fortune, by the death of a relative. At the possession of so much money she swells with arrogant pride and her love for Pat. the policeman, turns cold. She visits all the big stores, making many purchases. She sojourns at a high-class hotel with servants to wait on her, buys a pet dog, and finally an automobile. It does not take her very long to get the habit of speeding with almost serious results. She is on the point of being arrested for exceeding the speed limit when to her surprise the policeman turns out to be Pat, who seems compelled to perform his duty in arresting her. The situation seems to be twixt love and duty. After some pleading the old love is rekindled and a compromise is made by Pat resigning from the force and marrying the now wealthy Bridget.
