Chorus girl Jane Wallace (Bessie Barriscale) has earned the soubriquet "Iceberg" because of her refusal to compromise her values by leading the libertine lifestyle of her co-workers. Eventually, however, Jane begins to weaken and at one point nearly allows herself to be the "kept woman" of a millionaire. But fate takes a hand in matters when our heroine is called upon to help out during a premature childbirth. Witnessing her compassion during this emergency is poor-but-proud Dan Colby (Arthur Maude), who persuades Jane to give up show business to become his wife. Produced by Thomas H. Ince, The Reward provided a little extra employment for two veterans of Ince's William S. Hart pictures: actress Louise Glaum and screenwriter C. Gardner Sullivan.
