Synopsis

Angela Deming visits her uncle in Hawaii where she meets Joseph Whitely, a misanthropic self-made millionaire, and Eliot Slade, scion of a wealthy family. Both men follow her home. She rejects William Hanley, her childhood sweetheart, and marries Whitely largely because of her father's bankruptcy. Hanley tells Whitely that Angela only married him for his money. Whitely and Angela quarrel, and she consults a divorce attorney. When Whitely goes to Angela's parents and learns they know nothing of the marriage, he believes Angela might really have loved him, so he sets out at breakneck speed in his car to find her. Angela has promised to marry Slade after her divorce, but fears for Whitely's safety. Angela and her friends assemble at Whitely's apartment and all denounce him. Angela forgives Whitely when he arrives, and they find happiness together.
