Barbara talks him into staying and goes to Bradley to ask for a $5,000 loan. Bradley gives her the money because he loves her, even after she explains why she needs it. The next morning, Barbara presents the money to Eddie, who greedily accepts it, knowing where it came from. When Eddie comes home from work, he throws a fit of jealousy, and Barbara packs her things and returns to the dance hall. Then Bradley arrives with two tickets for the Ile de France , so that Barbara may obtain a divorce and marry him. +
