Storyline

Mary Anderson an heiress, feigns poverty while having a romance with struggling artist Bruce Haldeman, but her status-conscious mother puts an end to the affair. Mary secretly goes to Bruce's studio, but she mistakes one of the models for Bruce's new sweetheart, and so tells Bruce that she hates him. Anguished, Bruce wants to destroy his portrait of Mary, but the model stops him, enters the painting in an art contest, and then explains the mix-up to Mary's father. As a test of true love, he meets with Bruce and with Mary's persistent suitor Smythe Addison, and pretends that he has lost his fortune. Smythe quickly drops out of contention for Mary's hand, but Bruce remains eager. He goes to Mary to resolve their differences, and as they plan their marriage, he finds out that he has won the art contest, and has achieved overnight fame as a painter. Written by Pamela Short
