Jilted by his actress sweetheart Marie Beauchamp (Gretchen Lederer), Kenneth Scott (Emory Johnson) heads to the country to start life afresh. He promptly falls in love with rural lass Daphne Sawyer (Ella Hall), little realizing that she is the sister of the girl who just dumped him. Scott's already tangled-up love life is further complicated when Marie shows up in town to open a cabaret. He is tempted to return to his ex-sweetie, but Daphne emerges the winner. New Love for Old was a rare "adult" endeavor for director Elsie Jane Wilson, who usually specialized in juvenile-oriented pictures.
