When Mary Smith (Marguerite Clark) throws a party in her room at college, John Chiverick (Ralph Bunke) winds up there. Since his presence has "compromised" her, he marries her. But her father (John Washburn) annuls the marriage as soon as the ceremony is over and sends Mary abroad. Two years later she returns and wins the love of Larry McLeod (Leon P. Gendron). She tells him that she is a widow, but her lie comes back to haunt her at a Long Island house party when John shows up. Mary eventually fesses up to the truth and accepts Larry's marriage proposal. Marguerite Clark had left Paramount a year before to form her own production company. This farce, adapted from the play by Martha M. Stanley and Adelaide Mathews, marked her first time as producer. It featured one scene shot in color -- quite a novelty in the silent era.
