The all-purpose title Man Hunt was trotted out for this cinemazation of Fred Jackson's short story The Silver Lining. Ethel Clayton stars as lumber millionairess Betty Hammond, who travels to Monte Carlo half-hoping to find a husband. Not surprisingly, she is ardently pursued by every fortune hunter on the Riviera. Especially dogged are a French Count (John Ardizoni), an English Lord (Henry Warwick) and a Russian Prince (Herbert Barrington), each of whom is enchanted by Betty -- or at least by her bank account. Our heroine ends up finding romance in her own backyard, in the form of lumber-mill foreman James Ogden (Rockliffe Fellowes).
