Description by OLDIES.com:
Mary Barry dreams of going to New York to become famous and when answering a magazine ad, she believes she has found her chance. However, the publisher, D.V. Cortelyou, is a wolf leaving despoiled innocence in his wake. Luckily she meets Jack McGuire, an unemployed reporter, who is out to save Mrs. Howard Young from one of Cortelyou's extortion schemes. Jack will have to scramble to protect Mary's innocence and Mrs. Young's reputation because Cortelyou has called in his henchmen.
In a nostalgic mood, poverty row company Lumas Film Corp. trotted out a 1909 melodrama by James Kyrle MacCurdy as a vehicle for former Universal ingenue Gladys Walton. Gladys played Mary Barry, a naive backwoods girl who wins a beauty contest in "Gay Life" magazine. Arriving in the Big City with hopes of stardom, Mary instead finds herself involved in a blackmail scheme concocted by unscrupulous publisher Cortelyou (Coit Albertson). Soon, both she and the blackmail victim, Mrs. Young (Mary Thurman), are stashed away in a deserted farm house awaiting an uncertain future. Happily, Mary's new boyfriend, Jack (Niles Welch), learn of their whereabouts and notifies the police. Cortelyou and his accomplice Dolly Griffith (Nellie Savage) are apprehended and Mrs. Young is reunited with her forgiving husband (J. Barney Sherry).
