Gordon Ritchie (Ralph Morgan). This she does to spite her sweetheart, Ritchie's nephew Barnes (Norman Foster), who while stewed to the gills has married Jeanie's younger sister. The sister dies in childbirth, whereupon the elder Ritchie adopts the baby. Suffering a heart attack brought on by a vengeful woman from his past, Ritchie dies, leaving Jeanie in charge of her sister's child.
