~Plot Synopsis~
Because of his impressive work in Brown of Harvard and Tell It to the Marines, William Haines had just
achieved stardom when he was featured in this simple little comedy, based on the play by Rachel
Crothers. But he's nearly upstaged by Harry Carey who, without his usual Western gear, makes a
memorable appearance. Urged on by her parents, Julia Rutherford (Claire Windsor) agrees to marry an
old family friend, Alexander Smith (Carey). She heads for San Francisco to meet up with him, but on the
train she meets handsome, brash George Manning (Haines). The two of them fall madly in love,
completely unaware that Smith has boarded the train early to surprise his fiancée. At the end of the trip,
Julia and Manning know they must part and give each other a tearful farewell. But they are seen by Smith,
who realizes that Julia has found real love. For the sake of her happiness, he is willing to let the couple be
together and releases her from the engagement.
