Synopsis

Children in the House
Instead of marrying her childhood sweetheart, Charles Brown (William Hinckley), Cora (Norma Talmadge) has married the more well-heeled Arthur Vincent (Eugene Pallette). But Vincent, the son of a bank president, neglects Cora and their two children in favor of dancer Jane Courtenay (Jewel Carmen). Cora spends a lot of time with her sister and her sister's husband (who happens to be Charles' brother) and wishes she had chosen a better spouse. Meanwhile, Vincent goes from bad to worse -- Jane convinces him to team up with some of her friends and rob his father's bank. The crooks get away with this only temporarily -- eventually they are discovered, and most of them, including Vincent and Jane, are killed in the ensuing chase. So finally Cora is free to wed the man she should have married in the first place. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi

Going Straight
After they become parents, crooks Grace and John Remington (Norma Talmadge and Ralph Lewis) go straight, and John becomes a very successful businessman. Their past catches up with them when a former associate, Jimmy Briggs (Eugene Pallette), comes around and begins blackmailing John. John gets fed up with Briggs' incessant demands and tries to send him away. But Briggs threatens to send Grace -- who has never done time -- to jail unless John helps him out with a robbery. John is forced to comply. The house to be robbed happens to belong to a wealthy friend of the Remingtons, and Grace is spending the night there with her three children (Nino Fovieri, Francis Carpenter, and Fern Collier). John solves his dilemma by tossing Briggs off a window ledge. Apparently, he doesn't have to pay for this particular crime, because the film ends with the couple apparently living happily ever after. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
