Another triumph for the ever-popular Milton Sills, Paradise casts the star as Tony, a characteristically feisty stunt pilot. Upon marrying wealthy socialite Chrissie (Betty Bronson), Tony and his bride are given a tropical island for a wedding present. Unfortunately, the couple's "paradise" proves to be anything but, thanks to the cruel despotism of island overseer Quex (Noah Beery). Inevitably, the natives stage a bloody uprising, misdirecting their anger towards Tony. The suddenly conscience-stricken Quex then rescues the hero and heroine, sparing himself from a grisly fate by putting a bullet in his own head! Paradise was pure escapist entertainment and was recognized as such by Milton Sills' hordes of fans.
