When Mary Turner is sent to prison for a crime she did not commit, she vows upon her release to take vengeance on those who wronged her, always staying however within the letter of the law.Written by

Norma plays a little shop girl wrongly convicted of stealing from the store where she works. She vows revenge on the heartless owner. After getting out of prison she embarks on a career as a woman who sues a series of old men for breach of promise, which is "within the law." But when she falls for the old store owner's son (Jack Mulhall), things go wrong, especially when her colleagues (Lew Cody, Eileen Percy) get sucked into a burglary scheme the cops have set up.
Not the greatest drama (although this was remade as PAID in 1930 for Joan Crawford and again in 1939 for Ruth Hussey under the original title), but Talmadge is terrific and looks great in the stylish clothing (she also produced the film thru Norma Talmadge Pictures for First National). The film is smartly directed by Frank Lloyd.
Print is excellent except for a very few moments of deterioration on the edges.
