Synopsis: [Moving Picture World, 29 November 1924, page 545] Because she is a clever vamp, Eve Quinn has generally had her way with men, while her sister Cornelia, a quiet, deep-thinking girl, cannot bring herself to deliberately pursue them. So Eve wins Lewis Dike, whom Cornelia loves. Immediately after her marriage Eve begins a series of dangerous adventures with Wilfred Meadows. Lewis learns of them and endeavors to reason with his wife, but she will not listen to him. As Cornelia is sailing for Europe, Lewis meets her at the dock, tells her that he has made a mistake in marrying Eve, that they are to be divorced and that he loves Cornelia. They part with mutual assurances of a future meeting.
