Cast & Crew
Charles L. King
Adela Monmouth, who lives with her father (Gregory) and brother (Hugh) in a Virginia country home, is encouraged by her sweetheart, Owen Barwell, to pursue her musical career. Her musical aspiration moves her father at last to tell her of her mother's past: having also been a musician, she had been induced by another man to go to the city, deserting Gregory and the two children. Later, the shock of Hugh's death proves fatal to his father, and Adela goes to New York, hoping to achieve success as a singer. There she is aided by a wealthy manipulator, Spencer Trayes, whom she permits to invest her remaining money with remarkable results. Later, she discovers that Trayes has been supporting her with his own money, and she schemes to bring about his downfall on the exchange. Owen then reveals that Trayes is in fact the promoter who years before had eloped with her mother. Trayes is defeated on the market, and Adela accepts Owen's proposal of marriage.
