Ernest Maltravers was based on a novel by Lord Lytton. Cowley Wright plays the title character, a wealthy man in love with less wealthy Alice Darvil (Lillian Hall Davis). After she saves his life, Alice disappears from Ernest Maltravers' life, to marry a man she does not love. Enduring several years of connubial hell, Alice is at last reunited with the hero. It's interesting that a film which argues against arranged marriages was written by a British aristocrat.
