Astor, down on her luck, meets multimillionaire Holt, who plucks her from poverty. Meeting and marrying her in a single day, he-man Holt lavishes jewels and furs on the attractive Astor in a seemingly unending flow. Taking time off from attendance to his bride, the business baron

retreats to his mines to get more ready cash with which to regale his wife. In his absence, gigolo Cortez makes his appearance, wooing the worried wife. Astor succumbs to the bounder's blandishments, as Holt learns upon his return. Holt exacts a terrible revenge upon the two: he hires private

detectives to ensure that they remain entwined. Each time Cortez attempts to escape with Astor's jewels, he is rounded up and returned to her; when Astor evades the cad, he is brought to her side. Finally, a convenient first--and never divorced--husband of Astor is brought into the picture. He is

murdered by the disgruntled Cortez. The latter is convicted of the crime, and the contrite Astor returns to Holt, her benevolent benefactor. A remake of the silent RECOIL (1924).
