15 Second Theater Presents, Proudly …
Weatherby, in love with Edna.
Weatherby, Tom's brother and rival.
Edna Gordon discovers Tom Weatherby at the
thoroughbred races. Instantly, she falls in love. She spies Louis Weatherby
and inquires about Tom's standing. Louis tells Edna that Tom is to be married,
a falsehood. Edna is horrified. Tom returns from the restroom to find the
fetching Edna and asks her to be his bride. She declines, more distressed than
before. Meanwhile, Louis has gained favor with Edna. Tom is sullen and exits
to the track saloon, then falls unconscious. A group of drunken bystanders
begin to molest Tom, causing a loud disturbance. Louis comes to his aid, and
in a moment of remorse, admits his duplicity. Tom asks once more for Edna's
hand, and this time, cheered on by the track Nurse and Doctor, she agrees.
