Based on the novel Glitter by Katherine Brush (New York, 1926).
Serious complications result for college football star Jock Hamill (Richard Barthelmess) when he is
vamped by his coach's wife, Eunice Hathaway (Dorothy Reveir), a former sweetheart. The coach
commits suicide after his wife's extravagance drives him to embezzlement, Eunice tricks Jock into
promising marriage, and Jock is suspected of murdering the coach. Greatly worried and shunned by
his fellow students, Jock nearly loses the big game; but he finally comes through with a timely drop
kick, his mother exposes the truth, and Jock is reunited with his true love, Cecily Graves (Barbara
Kent).
