This romantic drama has more than a few comic touches and also features Viola Dana in a short series of dances, including "The Dance of the Flowers" and "The Yama Yama Man," which was a rage of the day and is often associated with Irene Castle.

But at heart it's the story of an orphaned girl and her complicated relationship with her guardian (Edward Earle) and how they fall into the dark schemes of a ruthless financier (Augustus Phillips) who goes broke.

Directed by John H. Collins (Dana's husband) who also directed Dana in films like BLUE JEANS and THE COSSACK WHIP. This film is less sensational and deals with the assumptions of those who think there's something gong on between the guard and his ward.

Terrific music score by David Drazin.
