SYNOPSIS: Nan DeVere is a chorus girl who is tempted by the lavish attentions of Mr. Lany, a married man of considerable wealth. She decides to give in to his advances, but Mrs. Lany meets her at the theatre and pleads with her to release her husband. She tells of their life of poverty, how he made a lucky mining strike, and how she could not keep up with his social aspirations. Nan is moved by the wife's plea, and plans to teach the husband a lesson with the help of Joe, the property man. She send word to Lany that she will see him after the show. He arrives and takes her in his arms when Joe bursts in, brandishing a revolver and claiming to be her husband. Lany, thinking he is the victim of a badger game, declares his love for his wife, the only true- hearted woman in the world, and leaves willingly.

"A very strong offering made by Joseph De Grasse and a company headed by Pauline Bush and Lon Chaney, who plays the property man instead of his accustomed role of heavy. This is very well acted and constructed and will draw considerably on the sympathies of all." --- Motion Picture News

NOTES: The working title of the film was THE GIRL WHO COULDN'T GO WRONG.
