Even though (or perhaps because) Paul (Hallam Cooley) is engaged to nice girl Doris Kane (Helen Jerome Eddy), he can't resist the siren charms of Jeanne Dupre (Claire DuBrey) who, title cards tell us, has "a record from Nome to Monte Carlo." Paul's parents (Charles Clary and Frances Raymond) are horrified by this and Dad offers the woman ten thousand dollars to go away. But by then Jeanne has seen the error of her ways and turns down the money. Paul, meanwhile, has sowed enough wild oats so he settles down with Doris. This picture was a muddled adaptation of the poem by Robert Browning.
