MELODRAMA:

Although Susie La Motte, a cabaret dancer, loves boxer Jim Moran, she vamps young, idealistic John Browning. Moran accidently shoots himself during a fight with the jealous Browning, and Susie, out of malice, accuses Browning of murder. Browning is sentenced to death by electrocution, but a power failure and a last-minute confession from Susie save him.
