While the boast that this society drama had an all-star cast is a bit exaggerated, it did feature some of the best-known leading players of the day. Wilbur Brown (John Walker) has run up a huge debt. His sister Mary, a chorus girl (Vivian Martin), is determined to save him because news of Wilbur's wrongdoing would kill their sick mother (Mary Alden). Mary accepts money to pay the debt from John Duane (Robert Cain), a faithless married man with an eye for young chorus girls. Mary's sweetheart, Jimmy York (Kenneth Harlan), writes Duane a check to pay him back, even though he has nowhere near that amount of money in the bank. He figures he'll get the money by winning a big auto race, but he loses. Mary is about to pay Duane for the debt with her favors when Wilbur shows up and settles with him.
