Movie Info

In this melodrama, a rich young man marries an impoverished young woman and incites the wrath of his snooty parents who are being utter hypocrites because their fortune is in a most precarious state. To help restore the familial wealth, the parents try to force the young bride into having an affair with a prominent banker. The ploy succeeds and the money begins rolling in. But when the tryst comes to light, the bride leaves them and becomes a dressmaker. Meanwhile, her husband begins working hard for the first time in his life and in time the two eventually reconcile and happiness ensues.
