Storyline

Jane Lawson takes the blame for her younger sister Ruth's minor romantic indiscretion, and is thrown out of the house by her straight-laced parents. She finds work as a department store model, and then marries Will Rogers, her boss's dissolute son, even though George Blake, another store employee, is a far more wealthy and sensible suitor. Will starts embezzling store funds, and when George finds out, to protect Jane, he gives Will some money and sends him to Alaska to make good. His habits fail to improve, however, and when Jane goes to Alaska to meet him she arrives just in time to watch him hang for murder. Suddenly, Jane realizes George's true worth, and so marries him as soon as she returns. Written by Pamela Short
