Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After leaving D.W.Griffith's stock company, Henry B. Walthall tended to flounder for several years in such indifferent starring vehicles as the Essanay three-reeler The Woman Hater. The plot has something to do with a misogynist (Walthall) who impulsively decides to take a bride (Edna Mayo) then changes his mind and stalks out of the church on the day of the wedding. The hero's best friend Bryant Washburn takes it upon himself to solve matters. Washburn arranges for Walthall to be arrested on a trumped-up charge, from which he will be released only if he agrees to a jailhouse wedding with the heroine.
