Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In his last British-made silent, debonair leading man Clive Brook played a man of the world who convinces his mistress (Nina Vanna) to use her not inconsiderable charms to trick a dupe (Warwick Ward) into buying a phony oil well. Brook was Hollywood-bound in 1924 and would go on to enjoy a successful career playing suave leading men to such female stars as Pola Negri, Clara Bow, and Marlene Dietrich. French-born British screen vamp Nina Vanna is perhaps best remembered for playing Lady Teakle in a 1923 version of School for Scandal.
