Movie Info

Leatrice Joy was just starting her association with Paramount and was not yet a star when she played Thomas Meighan's love interest in this South Seas romance. New York society man Burke Hammond (Meighan) travels to the South Sea Islands and falls in love with Rita (Joy), the daughter of Morgan Pring, the captain of a contraband ship (Theodore Roberts). Hammond decides to stay on the islands, but his plan is interrupted by the appearance of Lady Helen Deene (June Elvidge), who has designs on him. Since Burke has political aspirations, and Helen would make a proper mate for him, his resolve wavers. But the eminent Professor Jansen (John Miltern) comes to Hammond and shows him a vision of what his life would be like with each woman: his loveless marriage with Helen, and his life on the island with Rita. Still, he is undecided until he sees Rita, who has tracked him down. The couple is happily united.
