Wealthy collegiate Charles Delaney inherits a row of tenement buildings in the city's slum district. Visiting his new acquisition, he meets and falls in love with tenement girl Erin La Bissoniere. He marries her and sets her up in a posh home in the suburbs, where she soon attracts the attentions of every male in the vicinity. Upon discovering that La Bissoniere enjoys "playing the field," the disillusioned Delaney walks out on her and heads to Texas. A series of bizarre circumstances leads the world at large to assume that Delaney has been killed, and he does nothing to discourage this assumption. Drifting to Mexico, Delaney makes the acquaintance of a fight manager and before long has established himself as a champ pugilist. When his true identity is discovered, Delaney isn't too put out, since he has by now found true happiness with his ex-wife's virtuous sister (June Marlowe).
