Produced by Poverty Row regular Morris R. Schlank, this silent domestic drama featured Dorothy Dwan as Joyce Kennedy, an inveterate gambler charged with killing a card sharp. As the girl's husband (Gaston Glass) discovers, the gambler was actually murdered by a jilted girlfriend who is made to confess on the witness stand. The murderess was played by Alice Lake, a former Mack Sennett bathing beauty now down on her luck, career-wise. The wife of star comedian Larry Semon, brunette Dorothy Dwan is perhaps best remembered as Dorothy in her husband's odd version of The Wizard of Oz (1925).
