Cast & Crew
Lowell Sherman believes that his marriage is idyllic, but behind his back his wife Alice has begun an affair with his best friend, Cyril Carr, who is also married. Finally, Lowell finds out about the romance, and for revenge he ruins Cyril financially. Cyril commits suicide after going bankrupt, and Alice leaves Lowell when she finds out that he knew about her infidelity and plotted against her lover. Suddenly feeling guilty, Lowell starts supporting Cyril's young son Tommy, and from his frequent visits with the boy, he falls in love with Cyril's widow Muriel, whom he marries as soon as his first marriage is annulled.
The working title for this film was The Secret Mating. According to a pre-release news item, Hylda Hollis was to co-star in this production. Some sources erroneously list Frank Keenan as playing "Cyril Carr." In a letter to New York Dramatic Mirror, Harry Keenan called attention to the mistake.
