Cheaply assembled, The Stronger Will barely even tries to make sense. The story has something to do with a powerful Wall Street broker who heads to Mexico on business. In his absence, the broker's fiancee discovers that her husband-to-be is a crook, and promptly announces her engagement to another man. Upon his return, the broker threatens to destroy his girlfriend's father unless she agrees to get married immediately. The heroine sadly acquiesces but insists that it will be a marriage "in name only." In a truly out-of-left-field plot twist, it turns out that the broker is actually the hero of the piece, and that he has saved the girl from a disastrous marriage!
