Storyline

Raised as a Puritan, Mabel Halloway lives in the Bohemian section of New York, where she is pursued by two men: John Rand, a magazine editor whose wife has refused to grant him a divorce for years, and Raymond La Farge, a licentious stockbroker. Mabel prefers John, and when her brother Dick loses the money he stole for speculation on the stock market, John writes her a large check that clears Dick's name but leaves John penniless. Conscience-stricken, Mabel agrees to marry Raymond provided he repay John, and the two embark on an unhappy marriage. Dick then becomes involved with a chorus girl named Tiny, who reveals that she is Raymond's abandoned wife. When Mabel confronts him, he confesses that his check to John was worthless and then attacks her. In their struggle, Raymond falls from a window and is killed, finally freeing Mabel to marry John, whose wife recently died. Written by Pamela Short
