SYNOPSIS

New Yorker Geoffrey Sherwood is jilted by Valentine French, the woman he loves, in favor of a wealthier man, Marland. Drunk, he watches the wedding from outside the church, and as he becomes increasingly louder, Miriam Brady, a shopgirl on her lunch hour, overhears two policemen plan to arrest him. To prevent that, she guides Geoff to a cafe, where Hugh Brown and Tony Hewlitt, two of his society friends, discover them. They offer Miriam one hundred dollars to stay with Geoff and keep him out of trouble. The next morning, Geoff and Miriam are still together, having married while both were under the influence of alcohol. Miriam is ready to give Geoff his freedom immediately, but he decides to stay with her. They rent an apartment in an unfashionable neighborhood, and while Geoff starts his own business, Miriam tries to better herself with the help of her landlady, Mrs. Martin, a former Floradora girl. Miriam helps Geoff to stay sober and things are good between them until Valentine, unhappy with her own marriage, decides she wants him back. Miriam confronts Valentine in a restaurant and the resulting quarrel makes the papers. Geoff blames Miriam and is about to leave her, but she goes first.
