H. Ulysses Watts (Hopper) is a traveling Shakespearean actor whose career is on the decline, as his audiences are more interested in cinema and vaudeville. When the troupe is robbed by Stoner (Stockdale), Watts cares for an injured young trapeze artist (Love), and pretends to be her father so that he can protect her.

While healing in the village, the girl falls in love with a hotel manager, and they plan to marry. However, Stoner returns and threatens to reveal her true career and that she and Watts are not related. Instead, Watts tells all of this to the hotel manager, who is still in love with the girl and wants to marry her. At the wedding, Stoner fatally shoots Watts, who performs the death scene from Julius Caesar as his final performance. Stoner is captured, and the girl and her new husband live happily ever after.[6][7]
