When engineer Jack Craigen (Bert Lytell) returns from an assignment in Africa, he stays with his Uncle Cannell (Stephen Grattan). Two other visitors are there -- aspiring actress Helen Steele (Lucy Cotton) and her fiancé, Tracy, a playwright (Cyril Chadwick). Helen is annoyed because Tracy and Cannell aren't convinced she can play the vampy lead in their latest production, and she tries to prove her worthiness by winning over Craigen. Within a week he proposes and he's incensed to find out he's been tricked. Helen jokingly suggests that perhaps he can win her over the way men do with their brides in Africa -- by kidnapping her. He takes her up on this and steals her away to his cabin in the mountains. His macho tactics wind up impressing her, and by the time her fiancé tracks her down, she's decided to stick to Craigen. This picture, adapted from the play by Charles Goddard and Paul Dickey, was remade as a talkie starring Claudette Colbert and Edmund Lowe in 1932.
