SYNOPSIS

When the war between Turkey and Greece breaks out, Kirke Warren, a famous war correspondent who uses the nom-de-plume "The Galloper," leaves for Athens to escape his creditors and the grasp of Sybil, a wealthy brewer's widow to whom he proposed when his ex-wives' demands for alimony became pressing. Young American millionaire Copeland Schuyler, sailing to Africa to hunt big game to relieve his ennui, falls in love with Grace Whitney, who as a Red Cross nurse is going to Greece to find a hidden treasure for which her father, an archaeologist, was searching when he died.

After Cope experiences difficulties due to Kirke's past, and both he and Kirke are nearly executed because the Greeks did not appreciate The Galloper's reporting of their last war, Cope and Grace become engaged, while Kirke and his ex-wife are ... +
