During the early '20s, the star/director team of Mae Murray and her husband Robert Z. Leonard was nearly unbeatable. Murray's fame was based on films like this one. Elmer Harmon (Monte Blue, Murray's co-star in several films) travels to Paris to land a contract with the French government. He gets the deal with the help of Cleo, a dancer (Murray). They fall in love and are married, but back home in the States, Harmon discovers that his small town associates do not approve of his bride. He decides to start over again in the big city, but between the pricey apartment he has rented and Cleo's expensive tastes, the money runs out quickly. In order to help out financially, Cleo teams up with an old friend, but Harmon believes she is being unfaithful. The truth is finally revealed and the couple are reconciled. In 1930, when Murray's career was on the skids, she made a talkie with the same title, but it had only the barest resemblance to the earlier film.
