Milt Kimberlin meets Rosalie, a cabaret entertainer, and marries her. In a streak of bad luck he loses all his money, and his wife dies. Later, he becomes wealthy, marries Madeline, but longs for the happiness of his former marriage. He realizes his mistake when Madeline leaves him as a result of the implications of a forged letter "proving" Rosalie's infidelity. The blackmailer is unmasked, however, and the couple find new happiness together. (Information from "The American Film Institute Catalogue of Feature Films".)
