Storyline

After she marries Jack Valentine, Janie Wakefield ( Dorothy Gish ) discovers that her husband's reputation as a flirt is well deserved when she sees him riding in a taxi with a strange woman. Janie hesitates to believe that the man was Jack until he falls victim to the wiles of a fascinating widow who lives across the hall. After a tempestuous scene, Janie decides to forgive him until she overhears Jack making a date with a manicurist. The irate Janie returns to her father and, accepting a position in his Wall Street firm, becomes a successful businesswoman. Jack begs her to return, but only after he threatens suicide does Janie decide that her husband has been remodel-led. Written by Pamela Short

She was also assigned the daunting task of supervising the studio's construction as well as directing her sister Dorothy Gish in this film. Dorothy married her co-star, James Rennie, after production wrapped. See more »
