Synopsis / Plot
In turn of the century New York, pretty temperance worker Angela Collins, who is a member of the Daughters of Right, is hailed as the "Belle of New York" by her Bowery clientele, who admire her singing and her beauty. Wealthy patroness Mrs. Phineas Hill likes Angela, but frowns on the distraction she creates. Mrs. Hill's playboy nephew, Charlie Hill, who has never been near the charity, prefers the joys of café society and the company of beautiful women. On the night Mrs. Hill returns from Washington, Charlie is hosting a bachelor party prior to his wedding to sharpshooter Dixie McCoy. All of the guests are women, aside from Charlie's friend and lawyer, Max Ferris. When Mrs. Hill arrives, she disapproves of the revelry and sends the guests away, not realizing that they are celebrating Charlie's forthcoming wedding. Later, Charlie goes out with one of his friends, Frenchie, and admits that he does not want to get married. While they are driving in an open carriage, Charlie spots Angela singing with the Daughters' band and falls immediately in love.
