ly produced, filled With speed
and the vivid verve of the new
day children of wealth.
It opens among the playboys
and gay girls who ride and swim
and make merry In the society
whirl. It turns to the serious
side of life, as tragedy grips the
most daring and carefree ot these
gorgeous people. It develops in
to a tremendous conflict of love
