In this show biz melodrama, Jacqueline Logan played a nightclub entertainer spurning her wealthy stage door Johnny in favor of a young man (Rex Lease) who she believes to be poor but honest. In reality, the boy is a society scion only masquerading as an average Joe in order to test the girl's love. When she discovers the truth, Logan throws herself at one of her former suitors (Phillips Smalley), a ruthless man about town who almost rapes the girl before she comes to her senses. Memorable for playing a glamorous Mary Magdalene in Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings (1927), Jacqueline Logan suffered a severe career setback after the changeover to sound and later worked as a dress extra.
