After cutting his teeth on Mack Sennett comedies, this drama became Roy Del Ruth's first serious film. Eve Burnside (Irene Rich) owns a successful steel factory and has no interest in love -- that is, until she meets Baron Maddox (Bert Lytell). What she doesn't realize is that Maddox has been sent to woo her by her competitor, Austin Starfield (Willard Louis), who is hoping to force her into selling her steel works. After they are wed, Maddox discovers that he really does love Eve, and refuses to help his former associate. The count, however, has left a string of love affairs in his wake, and one of his exes, Rena (Clara Bow, winning as always), shows up to cause trouble. She convinces Eve that Maddox only married her for money, causing the couple to separate. They are reunited when Starfield instigates a strike at Eve's factory and Maddox puts a halt to it. Eve realizes she has misjudged Maddox and takes him back.
