Cast & Crew
Ralph Prescott, a New York bachelor lawyer, throughly despises women, having to listen constantly to their excuses for seeking a divorce. To escape them he agrees to go on a camping trip with Mr. Woodbury to Mantrap Landing in the Canadian woods. Woodbury soon tires of Ralph's pampered condition, and they part ways after woodsman Joe Easter separates them in a fight. Joe takes Ralph to his trading post and there introduces him to Alverna, his wife, a former manicurist, who immediately begins to flirt with him; she pleads to be taken back to civilization when he leaves, and she joins him against his wishes. Ralph swears he will ask Joe to divorce her; then they are stranded when his canoe is stolen and are rescued by an aviator who is en route to a forest fire. Alverna tries to vamp the aviator; Joe arrives; and when Ralph admits his agreement to her plan, Alverna rejects both of them. Later, she promises to be faithful to Joe, but he realizes she will always be a coquette.
