Also known as A Rich Man's Daughter, this five-reel drama starred Louise Lovely as the supposed mistress of an aging millionaire (Harry Holden). To avoid a family scandal, the millionaire's son (Philo McCullough) elopes with the heroine, even though he holds her in utter contempt. Only after making a thorough ass of himself does the son realize that the girl is blameless, and that he has fallen in love with her in spite of himself. If the film seemed unexciting and uninvolving, it may have been because its producers feared the censorial wrath of the National Board of Review. So little happened on screen that the audience found itself concentrating on the well-composed background shots.
