This drama was based on the play by Leon Gordon and Doris Marquette. The title refers to the estate owned by Flagg (Rockliffe Fellowes), a man of great wealth and few morals. He installs chorus girls there until he grows tired of them. His latest fancy, Dorothy Delbridge (Betty Compson), refuses to have anything to do with him, so he has her fired from the show in which she is performing. Eventually she comes around and becomes mistress of his manor. Then she meets Douglas Crawford (Warner Baxter), a fine, upstanding type who incidentally happens to have quite a bit of money. Without telling Crawford of her sordid past, Dorothy marries him. Flagg comes back to haunt her when he attempts to fleece Crawford. Dorothy wrestles with the possibility of telling her husband of her past without realizing that he's already aware of it. Not only does Crawford forgive her past, he thrashes Flagg, who falls over a balcony railing to his death.
