Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Alma Rubens, a hauntingly beautiful silent screen actress whose career was cut short by drug addiction, stars in The Gilded Butterfly. Rubens plays Linda Haverhill, who has been raised to be a golddigger by her mercenary father. While vacationing in Monte Carlo, she loses her heart to handsome American Brian Anestry (Bert Lytell). She also loses most of her money, which gets her in a jam when one of her "sugar daddies" demands repayment of past gifts. A bizarre twist of fate saves Linda from having to surrender her virtue, leading to a happy denouement with stalwart Mr. Anestry.
