The Wheel

Directed by Victor Schertzinger
1925    80m
Ted Morton, the son of a wealthy banker, loses heavily at roulette and, urged to settle down by his gravely concerned parents, informs them that he is engaged to Kate O'Hara, a milliner. His parents object to the match, but Ted nevertheless marries Kate. The elder Morton then disinherits Ted, who finds work as an automobile salesman. Eddie Baker, a gambler with a grudge against Ted, lures him back to the wheel, and Ted loses $2,000 of company funds. He desperately tries to raise the money, but Kate loses another large sum betting on a horse. Baker regrets his malice and makes Ted's losses good, writing a check and giving it to Kate. Ted sees them together and, misunderstanding, takes a shot at Baker, slightly wounding Kate. She quickly forgives him, and the young couple soon wins acceptance at the Morton hearth-side, completely in the good graces of Ted's family.
