Wiped out in the 1929 Wall Street crash, Fred Warner (Conrad Nagel) is no longer able to support his spendthrift wife Eve (Catherine Dale Owen) in the manner to which she is accustomed. At first resistant to readjusting her lifestyle, Eve finally relents, selling her jewels to help Fred get back on his feet. His return to wealth is slow and laborious, and along the way Eve tires of her husband and begins keeping company with other men. When Fred finds out, he confronts Eve in their boudoir, pulls out a gun and shoots her. But -- is this the end of the story? Its ridiculous denouement aside, Tiffany Pictures' Today does a reasonably good imitation of a deluxe MGM "special."
