- Summaries (2)
The father of San Francisco waif Meg runs an illegal liquor club and supports "English" Hal in scheme to blackmail a wealthy girl. Meg is put on probation to Benjamin Merton, father of the girl to be blackmailed. When she discovers her father's plan she reveals all, risking expulsion from her new home and the company of its very attractive son Tom.
"English" Hal, a con artist, poses as a British aristocrat to weasel his way into the wealthy Merton household, while Meg Dugan, whose father works with Hal, escapes from the juvenile hall next door and is also taken in by the Mertons. Always having been infatuated by Arthurian legends, Meg falls instantly in love when she meets young Tom Merton whom she sees as Sir Galahad. Meanwhile, Hal has his sights set on Tom's sister Alice and successfully courts her until Meg exposes him. For revenge, Hal produces Meg's father, who says that the Mertons can keep his daughter if they agree to pay him for her. Outraged, Tom's grandfather sends both Dugans from his home, but later, realizing that Meg and Tom really do love each other, he relents and allows the couple to marry.
