The Mutual four-reeler The Floor Above was based on a novel by the indefatigable E. Phillips Oppenheim. In one of her first starring vehicles, Dorothy Gish plays Stella Ford, a coquettish chorus girl. Despite the fact that she's married, Stella enjoys the attentions of millionaire Stephen Pryde (Henry B. Walthall). Her predilection for walking on the wild side has disastrous results when another of her erstwhile beaux, a slicker named Bartlett (Earl Foxe), is found murdered in her apartment. This experience causes the irresponsible Stella to grow up in a real hurry and also rekindles the romance between herself and her long-suffering hubby.
