Cast & Crew
Jack Denham, reared by his wealthy aunt Mary, is sent to college where he gets into trouble in a cabaret by becoming engaged to a girl who frequents the establishment. When Aunt Mary hears of his misadventures, she disinherits him and Jack must turn to one of his friends for help. Soon Jack falls in love with Betty, his friend's sister. Betty tries to effect a reconciliation between Mary and Jack by sending the aunt a telegram informing her that Jack is ill. When Mary arrives, Betty pretends to be the maid and they all pretend that the telegram was a ruse to get Mary to a party in her honor. They dress Mary up and take her out to the cabaret where Jack had gotten into trouble. There the old woman, now rejuvenated, discovers that the "fiancée" now has no designs on Jack and that he is free to marry Betty.
