It says here that Elinor Glyn, the incredibly pretentious author of such bodice-rippers as Three Weeks, was the director of The Price of Things, but we suspect that Madame Glyn (as she preferred to be billed) had a little uncredited assistance. Walter and Alfred Tennyson play a pair of identical twin noblemen, who constantly bail each other out in awkward romantic situations. When one of the twins can't be on time for his own wedding, the other serves as stand-in. Sure enough, the "wrong" twin falls in love with bride Elissa Landi. Meanwhile, the real bridegroom has a fling with notorious spy Mona Goya.
