Overview

Gloria Swanson was still being referred to as a former Keystone star when this drama was released. Here she is struggling artist Marcia Grey, who repulses the advances of rent collector Von Holtz Harvey Clark. He vindictively has her framed for a theft, and she is sent to jail. When she is released, she joins the Salvation Army where she reacquaints herself with wealthy philanthropist John Stanford Joe King, and they marry. Von Holtz reappears on the scene as a German spy. Stanford, who is working with the government, has some important papers that Von Holtz wants, and Marcia finds him fiddling with her husband's safe. He threatens to expose her prison term if she does not cooperate with him, so she accompanies him on a meeting with his fellow spies. Stanford's mother Lillian Langdon sees them sneaking off together and tells John. Believing that his wife is running off with Von Holtz, he follows, only to discover that Marcia has brought the police into the matter and the spies are arrested. Any doubts John had about his wife are gone, and they are happier together than ever.
