Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein

A former leading lady for director Cecil B. DeMille, vivacious Vera Reynolds was experiencing somewhat of a career slump when she starred in this romantic melodrama from poverty row producer Trem Carr. She played Lillia, a small town girl who gets involved with the wrong crowd in Paris. Arrested by police prefect Nigel De Brulier, Lillia agrees to seduce a politically important foreign prince Ernest Hilliard in exchange for her freedom. They fall in love, of course, and when the prince is informed of his succession to the throne, he chooses love instead of power and abdicates. A very young Carole Lombard (still spelling her first name "Carol") appeared in a supporting role as one of the heroine's Parisian friends.
