Based on the short story "Fifth Avenue" by Arthur Stringer in Saturday
Evening Post (19 Sep 1925).
When her cotton crop is burned, Barbara Pelham (Marguerite De La Motte), a beautiful southern
girl, comes to New York to find work as a fashion designer, staying with Mrs. Kemp (Louise
Dresser), a woman she meets on the northbound train. In Mrs. Kemp's house, Barbara encounters
Peter Heffner (William V. Mong), a wealthy stockbroker, and discovers from him that she has
taken up residence in a whorehouse. There is a police raid, but Barbara escapes arrest and returns
home. Heffner's son, Neil (Allan Forrest), goes south to inspect some family property and there
meets Barbara, with whom he falls in love. They decide to be married, and she accompanies him to
New York, where she meets the elder Heffner for a second time. He denounces her as a whore, but
Barbara goes to Mrs. Kemp, who explains the misunderstanding to everyone's satisfaction.
