D. W. Griffith is stated in some sources as co-director or perhaps had limited input as the production was filmed at his Long Island, New York production facilities, Mamaroneck. Lillian Gish wrote the story and scenario incognito as Dorothy Elizabeth Carter with Algonquin Round Table writer Dorothy Parker supplying the intertitles. Thus the movie was nearly an all-woman produced movie with the exception of the cameraman.
The film stars Lillian's sister Dorothy Gish and Dorothy's husband at the time James Rennie. George W. Hill, who is the cinematographer, would later go on to direct classic films at MGM like Tell It to the Marines (1926) and The Big House (1930).
As described in a film publication, Janie (Gish) gets married with the goal of reforming her husband, but he still has the eyes for other women. He says he is ashamed because lacks the style of a flapper. After he repeatedly gets into difficulties, she leaves him and goes into business. The husband finally realizes what a wonderful woman she is and repents.
