Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Given the ludicrous nature of The Iron Ring, it is little wonder that Charles Stokes Wayne, the author of the story upon which the film was based, elected to use the pseudonym of Horace Hazelton. Though she loves her husband Aleck (Edward Langford), Bess Hulette (Gerda Holmes) cannot pass up the opportunity to "fool around" with handsome Jack Delmore (Arthur Ashley). Likewise inclined to wander astray from her marriage vows is Mrs. Georgie Leonard (Alexandria Carewe). While Bess realizes the error of her ways before it is too late, Georgie does not, and the sorry result is the suicide of Mrs. Leonard's husband Ellery (Herbert Frank).
