Plot Summary

The wealthy Arden Stuart is bored in a party; after refusing the wedding proposal of Tommy Hewlett, she drives her car with her driver to a lonely place. She has one night stand with him and returns to the party; then she witnesses the driver being fired by a relative and committing suicide. In a rainy day, Arden goes to an exposition and meets the painter and aspirant boxer Packy Cannon. They sail to the South Seas together in his sailboat and Arden falls in love for him. However, a couple of months later, Packy dumps her and brings her back to her city, traveling to China alone. The heartbroken Arden is proposed again by Tommy and gets married with him. Three years later, Arden meets Packy by chance and becomes divided between her unconditional love for Packy and the love for her son. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia Originally filmed in the full frame silent screen ratio, when a sound track was added for the sound-on-film version, the left side of the image had to be cropped to allow room for it, and this is the print which survives today and is shown on Turner Classic Movies. See more »
