Storyline

The failure of a man to resent insults often is mistaken as cowardice. It was the case with James Gordon. He killed a man in a fit of anger and afterward resolved never again to lose his temper. Gordon weds Irma Alvord, a social butterfly who worships courageous men. However, she detects him passing off an insult from his secretary and is disgusted with him. She makes no secret of her disgust and it influences her friends to begin to loath Gordon. Finally, driven to a frenzy by the taunts of his wife and friends, Gordon breaks his resolution. He invades a party in his home and virtually "cleans house," hurling guests right and left. By such cave-man tactics he wins back Irma's love and the respect of those who once had sneered at him.
