Cast & Crew
H. M. Horkheimer
Millionaire playboy Stuart Merwin reforms immediately after marriage, but his wife Laurine has no interest in a sedate life style and so leaves him for weeks at a time while she sees other men. While Laurine is away on a binge, Stuart hits Jeano with his car, and brings her back to his home to recuperate. Laurine returns, and seeing Stuart and Jeano together, she suspects the worst, and insists on a divorce. Heartbroken, Stuart reverts to his old habits, but Jeano, now healthy, convinces him to reform once again. Then, inspired by Jeano, Stuart becomes a preacher in the Salvation Army and donates all of his money to that organization, after which he and Jeano start preparing for their marriage.
