~Plot Synopsis~
Shortly after the death of her father, Gloria Waring discovers that her brother, who stands to inherit the
family fortune, is about to marry a notorious gold digger, Teddy Lamont; to prevent the marriage, Gloria
openly steals the unopened will from the lawyer, James Hamilton. When Gloria later meets Hamilton at a
reception, he recognizes her and confronts her with her crime. Gloria admits to the theft and explains its
purpose to Hamilton, who is extremely sympathetic. Hamilton offers to help Gloria, but he is unsuccessful,
for he had an affair with Teddy Lamont and she no longer respects him. By the day of the wedding, Gloria
still cannot dissuade her brother from the marriage, and she accompanies him to a justice of the peace in
Connecticut. As the ceremony is about to take place, Hamilton steps forward and declares Teddy to be his
common-law wife. Gloria's brother is disillusioned by this terrible confession and calls off the wedding.
Hamilton decides to go to Europe; and Gloria, who has unexpectedly inherited the family fortune, goes
with him.
