~Plot Synopsis~
Doris Baker's extravagances force her husband Richard to speculate with bank funds. In order to
make his scheme foolproof, Richard enlists the aid of the bank director, who demands in return that
Doris receive his unpopular wife socially. Doris, however, is primarily concerned with young
millionaire Patrick Alliston, and so, when she ignores the woman, the bank director backs out of the
deal and leaves Richard penniless. Then, while Doris prepares to accompany Patrick on a trip to
Japan, Richard, despondent over his failed marriage and lost fortune, tries to kill himself. When
Doris hears about the unsuccessful suicide attempt, she realizes that she is to blame for all of
Richard's problems and decides to return to him, after which Richard's financial situation quickly
improves.
