Storyline

Dim-witted nursemaid Annie Pogani, who loves children, steals a baby girl from Selene Herrick, a wealthy woman who cares more for auctions than for family life. The girl, known as Orchid, is reared by Annie in an East Side tenement; when Annie dies, Orchid finds work as a model in a fashionable shop, where she meets Martin Innesbrook, a reporter who is making his reputation by writing editorials against the practice of acquitting female criminals just because they are women. During a fight with Terry Allen, a low fellow more used to taking than to asking, Terry is inadvertently impaled on Orchid's brooch. She is brought to trial for murder and, after a difficult trial, found innocent. Her true identity is finally discovered, and she is reunited with her father, who was the judge at her trial. She and Martin look forward to walking the road of life together. Written by Pamela Short
