Cast & Crew
James Parkington, finding that Lida, his wife, is more absorbed in Swetson, a neosymbolist lecturer, than she is in him, resolves to feign a suicide to secure her happiness. Although Parkington has willed his estate to Lida, Maria Fortescue, his aunt, lays claim to the estate upon his "death." Learning that Maria has inherited the estate, Swetson turns his attentions to her. Parkington, eager to know the results of his scheme, comes out of seclusion in disguise and visits the home, where he is recognized by his dog. He overhears a discussion of a second will, restores the original will, and, when discovered by Maria and Swetson, orders them from the house. Swetson reveals that he is married to Maria, and Parkington and Lida are reconciled.
