~Bought and Paid For~
~Plot Synopsis~
Virginia Blaine (Agnes Ayres), a hotel telephone operator--at the urging of her sister Fanny (Leigh
Wyant) and the latter's fiancé, Jimmy (Walter Hiers)--marries Robert Stafford (Jack Holt), a young
millionaire, though she does not love him. Stafford lavishes her with every luxury. After 2 years of
happiness, however, he frequently comes home drunk and insults her with the remark that she is
his property, "bought and paid for." Infuriated, she declares she will leave him unless he stops
drinking, and when he refuses, she deserts him. She returns to her life of limited means, and
Stafford, though he gives up liquor, is too proud to ask her to return to him. Their reconciliation is
brought about by Jimmy, now Fanny's husband.
