Cast & Crew
Geoffrey Hampden, a Texas oil millionaire living in New York, seeks revenge against Philip Armond, the man who caused his sister to commit suicide. His attempt on Philip's life is unsuccessful, but he is sent to prison for five years, after which he returns to Texas using the name George Hammond. He moves into a cabin with his business partners, Dick Stewart, whose sister Cynthia is abducted by business rivals. In a rescue attempt, Dick is mortally wounded, and on his deathbed he asks George to protect Cynthia. Although she agrees to the marriage, Cynthia does not love George, and immediately after the ceremony, she moves to New York to break into society with her husband's money. There she becomes engaged to Philip, and the two return to Texas to ask for a divorce. Philip has heart failure when he recognizes George, and Cynthia, learning the truth about her lover's past, returns to her husband to start a new life.
