Synopsis

Jack "Mile-a-Minute" Kendall, a young ne'er-do-well who likes to live recklessly and entertain chorus girls, falls in love with a beautiful but unscrupulous fortune hunter named Rosalynde d'Aubre. Intending to marry Rosalynde, he takes her to a country inn with his father and Philip Lund, who is aware of the woman's character, in close pursuit. Mr. Kendall offers Rosalynde a $5,000 bribe to withdraw quietly, after which Jack suffers a collapse. The inn is run by Jack Evans, a cantankerous miser, and his daughter Joan, one of Jack's childhood friends. Encouraged by Joan's faith in him and influenced by her gentle manner, Jack invents a new form of motor engine and soon earns a fortune. Jack's parents, finally proud of their son, happily accept Joan into the family.
