This Columbia programmer was one of a handful of films directed by cinematographer Tony Gaudio in the mid-'20s. Margaret Blake (Dorothy Revier, who would become known as the "queen of Poverty Row") is engaged to Alan Howard (Cullen Landis), but the relationship is destroyed when Howard thinks she is seeing someone else. Margaret doesn't reveal that the "other man" is actually her father, a gambler by the name of "Square Deal" Blake (Scott Turner). Blake dies, and so does Howard's father, but Margaret still has difficulty convincing Howard of her innocence. Howard's sister Alice (Barbara Luddy) is put in a compromising situation by a nasty character, and Margaret comes to the rescue. She thinks that she has killed the villain and flees. Eventually everything gets worked out, and Margaret and Howard are reunited. Actor Lincoln Stedman offers a bit of comic relief in an otherwise unbelievable story.
