~Plot Synopsis~
Ater Chadyeane Fairfax (Claire Windsor) leaves her palatial home and fast friends to visit an aunt in
France, her husband, Jimmy (Bert Lytell), falls for Frances Melrose (Doris Kenyon), a flapper and
goodtime girl. When Chad returns, she learns of Jimmy's indiscretions and, in order to excite his
jealousy and renew his interest in her, she pretends to be infatuated with Jack Le Moyne (Cullen
Landis), a jazz hound. This attitude serves only to drive Jimmy to drink and further indiscretions.
After several years of separation, Jimmy suddenly discovers that he has been cheated by his
financial advisor, Magnin (Frank Morgan), and that he is broke. Filled with renewed purpose rather
than remorse, Jimmy is reconciled with Chad, only to discover that he has been saved from
bankruptcy by a Major Murphy (J. Barney Sherry).
