"[Chorus girl] Evelyn [Vance] marries the rich Marshall Langham thereby double-crossing Gilmore, her boss, who had employed her to rope Langham into a scandal because of debts he owed Gilmore. The latter is killed and North, district attorney and sworn enemy of Gilmore and his gambling house, is held on circumstantial evidence. Evelyn could clear North but in so doing, she would expose Langham, the guilty one. When he is dying, he clears North who is engaged to his sister. At this point, Evelyn sees a vision in which her sins take the forms of monsters. For a fade-out you have Evelyn waking from a bad dream and all set to go on the iceman's picnic instead of hunting a rich papa." ( Film Daily, 30 May 1926, p39.)
