Synopsis

Phoebe-Ann assumes her ill mother's duties as caretaker of the Washington Square studio of Worthington Bryce, who in attempting to become an artist against his wealthy father's wishes, has succeeded only in painting the town red. After her mother dies, Phoebe-Ann moves in with Worthy and his valet Jenkins, and although she is the reason for Worthy's subsequent serious pursuit of art, he credits his improvement to his fiancée Lela Trevor. Lela, however, merely desires his father's money, and really loves Worthy's friend Dick Moreland. When Worthy's father stops his allowance, Phoebe-Ann sends some stories Worthy earlier wrote to a publisher, and Worthy becomes an overnight success. After a midnight supper celebration, Phoebe-Ann catches Lela and Dick embracing. To save Worthy from being hurt, she hides Lela and kisses Dick. Although Worthy tells Phoebe-Ann to leave, the next morning Jenkins tells Worthy the truth. Lela acknowledges her love for Dick, and Worthy, now in love with Phoebe-Ann, sends her to finishing school.
