Shirley Mason -- one of a trio of acting sisters which included Viola Dana and Edna Flugrath -- was known for her comedy-dramas in which she usually portrayed winsome orphan girls. Here, she tries something heavier by playing a stenographer in this romantic drama, but the material didn't give her much to work with. Marie Tyree (Mason) is heartbroken when her boss marries a widow, and she swears that from now on she will look for money, not love. When she meets Bert Woodmansee (Allan Forrest), who she believes to be rich, she thinks she has found her man. But after the wedding, she discovers that it's his uncle (Charles Clary) who is wealthy, and Bert is actually penniless. So she leaves him and then winds up meeting his uncle. When he becomes ill, she nurses him back to health and he proposes. But somewhere in all this, she has come to realize that she actually loves Bert, money or not, so she reunites with him.
