In spite of its title, Virtuous Men is not a drawing room comedy, but a melodrama set in an upstate New York lumber camp. Bob Stokes, a former club man (E.K. Lincoln), drifts into the aforementioned camp and is put to work. Immediately there is trouble between him and Robert Brummon, the camp boss. Brummon is the leader of a group of Reds who have been stirring things up at the yard (in the days when the U.S.S.R. was new, communists made easy villains in motion pictures), but Stokes gets the workers under control. Brummon is not so easily halted, however, and Stokes has to use his wits and his fists before overcoming him and winning the lumber camp owner's daughter, Helen (Grace Darling).
