Although she's best known for her work in comedies, especially for Mack Sennett and Hal Roach, Mae Busch starred in quite a few dramas throughout most of the 1920s. Here she is Marjorie Stockton, a fickle flapper who has loads of suitors. She won't give any of them the time of day, however, until she meets her match in the equally fickle Monte Covington (Frank Mayo). He shows no interest in her until, on a trip to California, he saves her from the unwanted advances of Teddy Hamilton (Lloyd Whitlock). Marjorie and Covington wind up getting married, but when one of her former suitors, Peter Noyes (Elliot Dexter), temporarily goes blind, she offers him her support and friendship. Both Hamilton and Covington believe she has fallen in love with Noyes. Marjorie sincerely loves her new husband and they reconcile. Hamilton, however, is furious that he has lost out and he shoots the couple. Their wounds are not serious and while they recuperate they confirm their love for each other.
