Synopsis

After the death of her father Martin, a tyrannical millionaire, the rebellious Irene Simpson-Bates decides to have a fling with her relatively meager inheritance of $15,000. Leaving her rather straitlaced sweetheart, John Norton, behind, Irene goes to New York, where she falls under the spell of the unscrupulous Courtenay Urquhart. Although he has no intention of actually marrying Irene, Urquhart persuades her to elope with him and signs them into a hotel as man and wife. John, determined to save the woman he loves, tricks Urquhart into believing that his British uncle has just left him a large inheritance. The ne'er-do-well immediately sails for England, and Irene, her eyes opened and her reputation as yet unsullied, returns to John.
