Catherine Calvert plays Adora Winstanley, a chorus girl who works her way up to star in The Pink Moon. She is courted by a large crowd of wealthy Stage Door Johnnies, but the one who catches her is Billy Kelvin (Joseph Bruelle), who proposes to her on his yacht. Naturally, his father (William Black) does not approve of Adora in any way, shape or form -- to him she's "that woman." Billy refuses to listen, and on threat of being disowned, merely becomes a chauffeur. At this point the senior Kelvin will do anything to separate the young couple, but he doesn't seem to be terribly imaginative. First he hands her a sizable check if only she will disappear. She takes it and tosses it away. Then he tries to prove to his son that Adora is faithless. This, too, fails. In the end he gives up and accepts the tenacious Adora into the fold.
