Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Silent screen favorite Madge Bellamy starred in this low-budget melodrama written and directed by character actor Alphonse Martell. In love with a rich customer, Count Albert Valraine (Theodore Von Eltz), salesgirl Suzanne Ricord accepts his engagement ring, but when she fails to understand "the rules of the game," as he puts it, the caddish Valraine demands that she return the bauble. Disillusioned, Suzanne takes to performing in a posh cabaret where gigolo Antoine "Tony" Ferand (Gilbert Roland) helps her retrieve the ring from Diane (Natalie Moorhead), Valraine's new wife. Suzanne flaunts the ring to Albert, only to turn him down when he asks her forgiveness. Tired of leading a desultory life, Tony leaves for Monte Carlo, but is arrested by the police when a watch given to him by Suzanne proves to be stolen goods. Fortunately, Suzanne, who has realized that she is in love with Tony, turns up in the nick of time to unmask the real thief (Paul Porcasi), one of the roués frequenting the cabaret. Deciding to give up the gigolo business once and for all, Tony and Suzanne instead plan to marry.
