Theda Bara wasn't the Fox Studios' only vamp; Valeska Suratt, as a matter of fact, was around before Bara and was briefly considered for the lead role in A Fool There Was, the picture that made Bara a star. Here, Suratt plays a vamp as bad as they come. Her character, Anne Baxter, marries for money, but when her old suitor marries for love and is happy, she becomes insanely jealous. Determined to ruin his life, first she tempts the wife with a lounge lizard. This doesn't work, so she temps her former sweetheart by offering him her husband's business secrets. Unfortunately Ann's husband (George M. Adams) overhears the conversation and not only does he ruin the young man in the stock market, he also tosses Ann out of the house. The film ends bitterly for all concerned.
