That question mark in the film's title should provide a good clue as to the tenor of the storyline. Married to British nobleman Marcus Heriot (Walter McGrail), Canadian-born Wanda Heriot (Alma Rubens) nonetheless strays from her nest to romance her true love Paul (Walter Pidgeon). Too much the gentleman to stand in his wife's way, Marcus agrees to annul their marriage. But when Wanda finds out that she's pregnant, she dutifully returns to Marcus so that her child will be born legitimate in the eyes of the law. The fact that Marcus is about to march off to WWI leaves the audience wondering how long it will be before Wanda is reunited with Paul -- though the film ends before this question can be answered.
