Based on a novel by William Dana Olcott, this domestic melodrama starred the regal Norma Talmadge as a spoiled heiress whose cheating husband proves not to be the society scion she had imagined. According to surviving reviews, Norma Talmadge looked stunning despite her marital woes, but the film was considered "not the thing to exhibit to audiences of young people." Eugene O'Brien played Miss Talmadge's rescuer, Hassard Short played the cheating husband, and Adolphe Menjou, Donald Hall, and Maude Allen were assorted society leeches. Norma's husband Joseph Schenck produced.
