Directed by Harry Revier and starring his then-wife Dorothy Revier, this silent melodrama featured Niles Welch as a philandering husband, whose goal in life is settling others unhappy marital relations. Leaving home and hearth after being named co-respondent in a divorce case, Welch meets a young woman whose jealous husband has her followed by detectives. To help the girl, Welch hires his estranged wife (Revier) to compromise the husband. She does just that but a blackmailer gets in the way. The story, according to the New York State license records, got even more complicated as it went along, culminating in a car wreck and the inevitable reunification of the estranged couple. Dorothy Revier later starred opposite Douglas fairbanks in The Iron Mask (1929) before settling into a long stay as low-budget Columbia Pictures' resident vamp.
