Storyline

Edith Ralston, reared in luxury, weds John Allison, of moderate means. Her extravagance finally drives Allison to the brink of bankruptcy. Harold Spencer, whom Edith rejected to become John's wife, is revengeful. He learns of Allison's financial straits and at a reception places a wallet containing a large sum of money on a table where it will tempt John to become a thief. Allison finds the wallet and takes it up to seek the owner. Spencer proclaims that he has been robbed and discovers the wallet in John's pocket. Edith believes her husband guilty and declares it was her extravagance that drove him to theft. Mrs. Gaynor, a gay divorcee who has been spurned by Spencer, has witnessed part of his trap for Allison and tells the truth. John is exonerated. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
