Cast & Crew
Cyrus Cairns, an elderly, crippled millionaire who is a keen admirer of dancers, brings Gay Raydon, a young ballerina, to live with him. Also in residence is Hal Crofton, an athlete hired by Cairns to be his physical therapist. Cairns soon falls in love with the beautiful Gay, who does not reciprocate his affections but loves Hal instead. Dolores, Gay's benefactress and a devoted friend of Cairns, forces her to marry Cairns, however, and Hal, devastated by the marriage, vows to leave the mansion. Gay announces her desire to go with him, but Zarth, the valet and another admirer of Gay, overhears her declarations and reports the news to Cairns, who, in a fit of jealous fury, locks the couple in a room to starve them to death. Cairns leaves for his townhouse but after a few days has a change of heart and notifies the police. The miserable old man kills himself, and the authorities overpower Zarth as he struggles with Hal for possession of Gay.
