Storyline

During his wife's absence, Andrew Dorsey is snared by Vivian Hepburn, owner of a crooked gambling house, and her silent partner, Guy Tarlow. Dorsey loses so much money that Vivian persuades him to give her one of his firm's checks for a large sum of money. Hearing her husband's confession, Marion Dorsey, returned from Europe, determines to retrieve the check. She disguises herself as a wealthy widow, vamps Tarlow, and persuades him to rob Vivian's safe and elope. Marion then steals the contents of the safe and later returns everything to the irate Vivian except the check and the money her husband lost. Written by Pamela Short
