When Lewis Stone (the future Judge Hardy) is the leading man, Florence Vidor co-stars as his wife, and Lew Cody portrays the other man, you've obviously got a quality silent feature. James Livingston (Stone) has been married to Grace (Vidor) long enough to take her for granted. Grace, on her end, is allowing herself to become drab. When Livingston suggests that his wife might do something to brighten up her appearance, she eagerly dolls up like a flapper. Livingston is not thrilled with the changes she has made, but his friend, Rex Phillips (Cody), thinks it's great. He starts seeing Grace on the sly, and eventually Livingston finds out. He and Grace agree to a divorce, but just as she is about to marry Phillips, Livingston has a change of heart. He realizes that he really loves Grace after all and he literally drags her from the altar to remarry her himself.
