Cast & Crew
Evelyn Murray, only daughter of wealthy Wall Street banker Alexander Murray, while with her aristocratic fiancé, Bert Van Vliet, runs down and injures newsboy Terry McGuire. To avoid unpleasant consequences, Bert persuades her to flee the scene of the accident. Evelyn is conscience-stricken and informs her father; he is then forced to pay "hush money" to a garage attendant who has witnessed the accident. That evening Murray gives a dinner to honor John Deems, Bishop of New York, to whom he plans to contribute money for a youth foundation. Influenced by the bishop, Evelyn goes to the hospital, becomes acquainted with the injured boy, and arranges for his care. Opposed by her father and fiancé, Evelyn disappears and is reconciled to them only when they agree to adopt a less overbearing attitude toward their money and power.
