Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Her Body in Bond was another money-spinning collaboration between actress Mae Murray and her director husband Robert Z. Leonard. Murray gets to show off her considerable terpsichorean skills in the role of Peggy Hamilton, who with her husband Joe (Kenneth Harlan) performs a vaudeville dancing act. On the verge of "hitting it big" on Broadway, Joe collapses from exhaustion, obliging Peggy to carry on the act by herself. Soon thereafter, she catches the eye of rakish millionaire Jimmie Quinn (Albert Roscoe), who intends to make Peggy his wife -- or to just make her, period. With the help of Peggy's drug-addicted stepfather, Quinn convinces the girl that Joe has deserted her. When Joe finds out what's been going on, he beats Quinn to a pulp and reclaims his bride.
