1928
~Corinne Griffith~
~Plot Synopsis~
Miriam (Corinne Griffith), a streetwalker, is evicted from her San Francisco boardinghouse and,
down to her last $3, meets Geoffrey (Edmund Lowe), an intoxicated society fellow trying to forget a
broken heart. Geoffrey likes Miriam and, on a whim, takes her to the church where his lost love,
Valentine (Kathryn Carver), is being married to wealthy Moreland (Claude King). Geoffrey becomes
greatly attached to Miriam and rents her an apartment. Miriam falls deeply in love with him and
becomes desperate when the heartless Valentine vamps her way back into his life. Miriam attempts
to return to the streets only to discover that, deeply in love with someone for the first time in her
life, she cannot give herself to another man. Miriam then contrives to show Geoffrey that Valentine
is a schemer who loves only money, and Geoffrey, come at last to his senses, takes Miriam in his
arms.
