The now forgotten Rubye de Remer starred as a girl with marital problems in this ridiculous but typical silent melodrama from poverty row company Arrow Film Corporation. De Remer played Blanche Young, who suspects an old flame, Joseph Burns (Frederic Kalgren), of kidnapping her intended, Harry Morton (Walter Miller). Soon, Blanche is also kidnapped, but the culprit proves not to be Burns at all, but the wife (Grace Parker) of Harry's brother John (Henry Pemberton). According to their father's will, Harry will lose his inheritance if he marries before the age of 30. A former Ziegfeld Follies dancer, Rubye de Remer enjoyed a brief bit of vogue in films like Luxury before retiring to marry a millionaire.
