Cast & Crew
Ruthlessly determined to succeed at any cost, Amos Mason comes to New York with his fiancée, Ann Sherman. By unscrupulous dealings and with the use of Ann's savings, Amos meets with considerable success and casts aside Ann, who is forced to take a job as maid in the Graves mansion. Amos begins to court Shirley Graves and causes Ann's dismissal. Mrs. Graves persuades Shirley to marry Amos, despite her love for the penniless Douglas White. Ann marries James Warren, an architect, whom Amos hires to build a mansion, and Ann tells Shirley of Amos' previous perfidy. Shirley has an affair with Douglas White but becomes disgusted with illicit sex when she believes him to be unfaithful to her. Amos' schemes fall flat, and he is arrested for swindling. In prison he repents, Shirley's attitude toward him softens, and they are reconciled when he is freed.
