Synopsis
Kate Croy has no money, so she cannot wed Miles Dunstan, who instead marries the rich and frail Milly Theale. Miles hopes to inherit Milly’s wealth when she dies. Milly is told of Miles’s unscrupulousness, but she forgives him and expires. Miles then refuses to marry Kate unless she renounces his newly acquired fortune. She refuses and the couple separates.
