~Plot Synopsis~
After her mother convinces her that a man who is morally faultless before marriage will most likely
sow his wild oats afterwards, Ruth Douglas (Helene Chadwick) refuses the proposal of her sweetheart,
LeRoy Sylvester (Bryant Washburn), an assistant at the public library. In order to tarnish his reputation,
LeRoy escorts Osprey Mandelharper (Helen Jerome Eddy), the flirtatious daughter of a lady
undertaker, to the sporty Babylon Gardens. After LeRoy flirts with Viva Bacchus (Anna Q. Nilsson), who
has just received a settlement of bonds from the mother of her fiancé, Adrian Love (Edward Burns), to
break their engagement, Viva loses the bonds. Hoping to be searched, LeRoy holds a package
containing jewels stolen by Johnny Binks (Charles West), but Viva recovers her bonds and calls off the
search. LeRoy then goes to a gambling house and calls the police to raid it, but he breaks the bank, and
the police just congratulate him. After Binks and Osprey fall in love, the jewels are returned, and Viva
and Adrian are reunited, LeRoy admits to Ruth that he is a failure as a thief, gambler, and flirt, but she
promises to marry him anyway.
