Cast & Crew
Informed by her aunt Annabelle that she will be disinherited unless she earns her own living for a year, social butterfly Sybil Drew sets out for New York, armed only with $125 and a sincere determination to succeed. Relaxing in the Plaza Hotel lobby, Dr. Ross Alger catches sight of Sybil at the registration desk and is strongly attracted to her, but because of her faltering manner, he begins to suspect that she is a crook. Following a difficult search for work, Sybil becomes a companion to the eccentric Oleander Berwick, who lives in the apartment above Ross's quarters. Although Ross's attraction has blossomed into love, circumstantial evidence convinces him that Sybil is a thief, and the situation becomes even worse for her when Miss Berwick's nephew Paul tries to seduce her. Miss Berwick dismisses Sybil, who soon afterwards is hit by a taxi. Mistaking her identity, a nurse has the girl taken to the home of Mrs. Alva Penfield, who operates a disreputable gambling establishment. Following several more adventures, Ross rescues Sybil and finally, realizing that she is not a crook, proposes to her.
