Cabaret dancer Alberta Vaughan falls in love with upright Southern gentleman Gareth Hughes. To save Hughes' sister Vivian Rich from ruination, Vaughan "comes on" to Rich's would-be seducer Bud Shaw. The younger girl is kept from losing her virtue, but the price of her salvation is Vaughan's reputation. But when the heroine rides her family's "old" horse to victory in a Big Race -- despite the fact that the race has been fixed in the favor of Shaw's nag -- all is forgiven. Very, very cheaply made, Old Age Handicap was redeemed by the razor-sharp cinematography of Jules Cronjager.
