~Plot Synopsis~
Lillian Gish tried her hand at film-directing in this gentle comedy of marital infidelity. Dorothy Gish is
Janie, the young and perky bride of Jack (James Rennie). Jack loves Janie, but he can't keep his eye
from straying. Janie tries to curtail Jack's flirtatiousness, but Jack wants to have one last fling before
he settles down to marital bliss. Finally, when he gives himself up to the ministrations of a flapper,
Janie leaves him. Janie discovers that she doesn't need her husband at all and sets herself up in
business. When Jack sees that Janie is no longer devoted or dependent on him, Jack has second
thoughts and realizes what a wonderful girl Janie is. With hat in hand, Jack comes to see Janie,
hoping that she will take him back.
