SYNOPSIS

Although five of her suitors declare they would die for her, Jeanne marries young lawyer David Norris.

Jeanne picks up Phil Burnham on his morning walk and recalls old times, but when asked to elope, he confesses to being engaged; Ned Picard, although staggered by her proposition, consents, then accepts David's offer of $10,000 to call it off. Jeanne is prepared to relent until she sees David kissing Marian, his pretty ward. David follows Jeanne to the office of Peter Carter, an author of books on marriage, who declares his love for her; but threatened by David with a gun, Peter's cries of mercy prove him unworthy. MacCullough, the last of her ex-suitors, almost carries her off but proves to be Marian's new husband and brings about a reunion of Jeanne with ... +
