Storyline

Despite her love for Gran Carver, Frances Alden bows before her socially ambitious mother's domination and agrees to marry Baron von Helmuth. There is a house-party at the Alden home to announce the engagement, but it ends disastrously as Mrs. Alden's $50,000 pearl necklace suddenly disappears. Carver, a dejected guest, suspects the Baron and breaks into his room. The two have a struggle. The Baron breaks away, rushes into Frances' room, grabs her and escapes from the house. Carver pursues the kidnapper and his victim, finally overtaking them. Again they struggle, this time with Frances aiding Carver. The Baron is overpowered. He has the necklace. Frances and Grant are married and the Baron is exposed as a notorious crook. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
