This society comedy-drama was given witty direction by Allan Dwan, and was based on The Laughing Lady by respected playwright Alfred Sutro. When Marjorie Colbert (Gloria Swanson) is neglected by her husband, Hector (Allan Simpson), she spends time befriending Harrison Peters (Ricardo Cortez). Peters mistakes her attention for love and puts her in a compromising position at a house party. Hector's mother (Ida Waterman) insists that her son get a divorce, and it goes through with the help of a detective and the skill of his talented attorney, Daniel Farr (Rod LaRocque). Marjorie blames the divorce on Farr and is determined to get back at him. She makes it look like he has attacked her, which ruins his reputation. She later regrets her action and, after confessing to the press, she makes plans to leave town. Farr, however, has fallen in love with her, and stops her from leaving. Marjorie realizes that she has fallen for him, too, and the two unite. In his attempt to portray New York society as realistically as possible, Dwan cast Thelma Morgan Converse in a small role.
