Storyline

Actress Nina Seabury is only interested in her lovers bank accounts, however, in the case of Emory Townsend, she miscalculates and believes him to be a bank president when he is really just a cashier. Hoping to afford Nina's tastes, Emory steals $12,000 in bank funds, but Nina still breaks up with him. Then, Emory falls in love with Mary Winslow. A few months after their marriage, however, a detective working on the bank funds case finds evidence implicating Emory. Aware that he is about to be arrested, a desperate Emory goes to Nina and begs her to give him $12,000, so he can return the money to the bank. Nina refuses, but then Mary, who is pregnant, arrives and, after pulling a gun on Nina, forces her to write a check for the whole amount, thereby saving Emory from jail. Written by Pamela Short
