Cast & Crew
Cora Madison, the town flirt, delights in making men love her and then dropping them, so when newcomer Valentine Corliss arrives, she views him as just another potential victim. Rather than falling for her charms, however, Valentine persuades Cora to use them in getting her past suitors to invest money in one of his phony business deals. Cora soon falls in love with Valentine but also discovers, along with the other townspeople, that he has been swindling almost everyone and that he courted Cora simply to be able to use her well-respected father's name in connection with his business scam. Her relationship with Valentine ruins Cora's reputation as well as her marriage prospects, so she is forced to accept the proposal of a down-and-out former suitor, while another of the past boyfriends kills Valentine as the con artist is trying to sneak out of town.
