Carmel Myers plays an incorrigible fortune hunter in The Gilded Dream. With the help of her godmother (Elsa Lorimar), the girl intends to land a millionaire husband. When our heroine forgets her purpose and falls for a poor but handsome man (Thomas Chatterton), the godmother tries to break up the romance by spreading scurrilous lies. The godmother's motives are not entirely mercenary: It seems that she herself has set her cap for her goddaughters handsome man. On the rebound, the girl promises to wed a wealthy older man, but it takes a near-fatal crisis for her to come to her senses and try to win back her true love.
