Judging from the way they were depicted in silent films of the 1910s and '20s, all that society folk ever did was throw endless parties. He-vamp Lew Cody makes his way through dinner parties, lawn parties, and dancing parties in this feature. Sedgewick Blynn (Cody) is a favorite in social circles -- at least among the women. Other than his charm, he has no redeeming qualities, except for his utter devotion to his mother. Nevertheless, he wins the heart of the wealthy Bessie Morgan (Louise Lovely), much to the relief of his family, who want him to marry well so he can pay off his debts. But Blynn is a compulsive flirt, and he also attracts the attention of Mrs. Trend (Lilie Leslie), much to the chagrin of her husband (Augustus Philips). Bessie eventually tires of his games, although he does do a good deed by saving the Trend child's life. In the end, Blynn's mother dies, and he crawls off, alone, and forlorn. This picture was based on the story by George Barr McCutcheon.
