Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Socialite Ruth Rowan (Lillian Rich) is trapped in The Golden Web when she falls in love with the Wrong Man. Betrayal and murder follow, with Ruth finding herself defending her life in court. The plot is resolved by the timely arrival of an earthquake, which conveniently eliminates the villains but spares the characters we truly care about. Once a leading lady for Cecil B. DeMille, Lillian Rich managed to make this two-week quickie seem classier than it really was. Rich continued working throughout the early talkie era, frequently playing "maternal" roles in Hal Roach's Our Gang comedies.
