Based on the story by William MacHarg.
Although Clara Bow was not yet a full-fledged star, she had already made a mark by mid-'20s. In this
melodrama, said trade paper Motion Picture News, "Clara Bow is cast as the flapper, a role for which she
has become quite famous on the screen." For once she is nearly upstaged by experienced character actor
and perennial villain Walter Long, who plays a bootlegger. On the evening that society deb Angela
Warriner (Bow) debuts, her mother (Myrtle Steadman) discovers that the family is bankrupt. To keep the
Warriners afloat financially -- and to keep Angela's parties and social status intact -- Mrs. Warriner
convinces her husband, John (Huntly Gordon), to become partners with Benedict (Long), a bootlegger
posing as a count. Meanwhile, Angela is being courted by Carl Graham (Forrest Stanley), but Harry Van
Alstyne (Robert Agnew) tempts her away with a fun, jazzy lifestyle. Everything falls down with a crash
for the Warriner family; John is arrested and sent to prison, and his wife temporarily goes blind from the
bootleg booze. This wakes up Angela, however, and she returns to the more sedate romancing of
Graham. The story to this picture came from the Saturday Evening Post tale by William MacHarg.
