Basically a silent picture for most of its 92-minute running time, Kitty switches to sound during its last 2 1/2 reels. Handsome young aviator Alex St. George (John Stuart) is on the verge of marrying his sweetheart Kitty Greenwood (Estelle Brody) when he's called off to serve in WWI. Hoping to break up the romance, Alex's domineering mother (Dorothy Cumming) does her best to convince her son that Kitty has been "playing the field" in his absence. So unnerved is Alex by these falsehoods that he cracks up his plane and ends up crippled, apparently for life. Returning to England, Alex undergoes a painful physical rehabilitation, while Kitty struggles to rekindle his affections for her.
