Cast & Crew
When Wall Street dynamo Richard Strong rescues Edwin Rossiter from financial ruin, Rossiter is so grateful that he persuades his daughter Elinor to marry their benefactor, although she does not love him. Instead, Elinor favors her distant cousin, Charles Dalton, a dissipated member of the aristocracy who weds Zoldene, an actress, on the day of Elinor and Strong's wedding. Soon after, Dalton wearies of Zoldene and renews his attention to Elinor, now estranged from her husband. Meanwhile, Strong and Zoldene's names are linked together in the scandal sheets, alienating Elinor even more from her husband. Dalton enters into a pact with Daniel Brewster to ruin Strong, but Elinor, finally realizing her love for her husband, assists in defeating his enemies. Their problems thus reconciled, Elinor and Strong face a happy future together.
