Woman and Wine almost bring about the downfall of the hero of this 5-reel melodrama. After inheriting a fortune, an impressionable young man falls under the spell of a beautiful "adventuress" (a 1915 euphemism for "hooker"). He soon runs through all of his money, and in the process all but destroys his family and friends. Eventually, things are set right when the adventuress is conveniently killed by her live-in lover. The star of Woman and Wine was Broadway actor William Elliot -- who, we hasten to add, was no relation to cowboy hero William "Wild Bill" Elliot.
