Crane Wilbur stars as celebrated concert violinist David McCare, whose talent is exceeded only by his libido. After loving and leaving several desirable young ladies, McCare settles down to marry a wealthy socialite. Soon, however, he tires of matrimony and is off and running in search of new conquests. Philosophically, his wife grants him a divorce, without informing him that there's a baby on the way. Inevitably, McCare runs up against a woman who treats him as shabbily as he's treated others, and the film ends as the guilt-ridden "hero" blows his brains out. With roles like these, it was no wonder than Crane Wilbur ultimately abandoned acting in favor of writing and directing.
