Cast & Crew
Lloyd B. Carleton
Gubernatorial candidate Walter Croyden is in love with Beatrice, but he acts obnoxiously when he drinks, so she flees to Europe to re-evaluate the relationship. On board her ship she meets John Nevill, who is unhappily married but fails to mention the fact to Beatrice. They enjoy an idyllic romance in Monte Carlo until she discovers that he is married. Brokenhearted, she returns to marry Walter, who has been elected governor. They live happily and have a baby. Meanwhile, Nevill, who is now free of his wife, wants to win Beatrice away from Walter. He causes a scandal when he insinuates in the local newspaper that Beatrice's newborn child is his rather than Walter's. Beatrice is furious upon reading this, and when Nevill makes amorous advances toward her, she stabs him. Overhearing the struggle, Walter rushes in to rescue Beatrice. As Nevill dies, he tells Walter that he has committed suicide, and husband and wife are reconciled.
