Mary Boland, best known for her scatterbrained comedy roles in talkies, made her screen debut as romantic lead Alma Clayton in Edge of the Abyss. Alma rejects poor-but-honest boyfriend Jim Sims (Willard Mack) to marry rich-but-neglectful attorney Neil Webster (Robert McKim). Bored with Webster, Alma tries desperately to woo back old beau. She is made to see the error of her ways by burglar Wayne Burroughs (Frank Mills), who owes her husband a favor. Thomas H. Ince produced Edge of the Abyss, while C. Gardner Sullivan wrote the florid subtitles.
