Broadway matinee idol (and notorious off-screen lothario) Lou Tellegan stars as "The Villain" (that's his name in the credits!) in With This Ring. The villain is brother of The Hero, played by Donald Keith. Shipwrecked on a desert island with The Girl (Alyce Mills), The Hero is separated from her, never knowing that she is carrying his child. Returning to the States, The Girl, worried that The Hero will never return, accepts the offer of marriage made by The Villain so that her baby will at least have "a name." The Villain proves to be a brute, whereupon The Lawyer (Niles Welch) offers his hand in marriage, which The Girl accepts. At this juncture, The Hero shows up, beats The Villain to a bloody pulp, and makes an "honest woman" of The Girl by marrying her, with The Lawyer generously handling the nuptial arrangements.
