In fact, his last thought was of her, and he sent word to her that he had ruined her future and disgraced himself to save his own miserable life.

When Charles inherits a fortune, Nelly and her gang are on hand to bilk him out of it through marriage. But when push comes to shove, is she up to the scam?

This moderately nifty little crime film is decently produced for the era; the Selig company was the middle of the road production company of the Patents Trust, with a generous assortment of the many genre films that were becoming more popular -- although with a couple of favored lines in Tom Mix cowboy pictures and jungle epics, thanks to Selig's rapidly expanding menagerie. However, Selig's hesitancy to commit to feature production and the loss of their European markets during the Great War-- in short, changing tastes -- would put them out of business in a few more years.

In the meantime, there's this decently produced short movie that does what a hundred other movies has done. It's not noticeably bad nor good.
