Cast & Crew
Helen Lee Worthing
Although in love with Virginia Philips, Lew Tyler refuses to be supported by his rich prospective father-in-law, causing her to break the engagement. Thus cast off by Virginia and insulted by her father, Tyler finds distraction in Jessie Winkler, an old friend; and through the efforts of Buzzy, a business partner, Lew and Jessie marry. Their marriage is unsuccessful, and Lew, haunted by the memory of Virginia, seeks forgetfulness in a liaison with Coleen Miles, a neighbor. On the night Jessie sees him with Coleen, their child dies, and Lew remorsefully dulls his sorrow by drinking. Jessie is granted a divorce, and Virginia's father, regretting his treatment of Lew, effects a reconciliation between him and Virginia, and they are married. On the night Virginia's child is born, Jessie comes to nurse her, and Lew humbly seeks a means of reparation for his failure; he agrees to finance a hospital for poor children and thereby ensures her happiness.
