Cast & Crew
After her father dies and a banker, to whom he owed $5,000, insults the family's honor, dancing instructor Mary Lee, the last of a long line of Southern aristocrats, goes to New York vowing to repay the debt. In Paris, Raoul Garson, an American theatrical manager, signs dancing sensation Anna Gerard, who resembles Mary, to appear on Broadway against the wishes of her Apache lover Pierre La Rouge. When Anna, performing as "Zura," quits, Garson discovers Mary wandering the streets and gives her $5,000 to appear as Zura, while she promises secrecy. After La Rouge comes and murders Anna, Garson makes it look as if Mary died. Mary's fiancé, Richard Crane, returning from an engineering project in South America, finds Mary, but she will not admit her identity. When Anna's fiancé, John Wentworth, realizes the ruse and informs the police, Richard confesses to protect Mary. Mary goes to Paris and dances before Pierre as Anna's ghost. After he confesses, she and Richard find happiness in South America.
