Storyline

Barbara, Tired of her boring life in a small Southern town, Barbara marries Johnny Lester, social secretary to the wealthy Mr. Ellis, in the belief that he will provide her with social standing and wealth. Her plan backfires, however, when Ellis fires Johnny. Johnny is unsuccessfully seeking employment in New York when Ellis makes overtures to Barbara, who accepts his attentions, finally leading to a divorce from her husband. Concluding that the only way to make money is to earn it, Barbara obtains financial backing from Brookes, a wealthy friend, to open a millinery establishment. The store is prospering when Brookes appears and demands payment in flesh. Barbara, in a rage, spurns him, wrecks the store, and returns to Johnny who, satisfied that she has learned her lesson, forgives her. Written by Pamela Short
