~Saturday Night~
~Plot Synopsis~
Iris Van Suydam and Richard Wynbrook Prentiss, a wealthy society couple, are engaged. Iris,
however, is attracted to her chauffeur, Tom McGuire, who is in love with her; and Richard meets
Shamrock O'Day, beautiful daughter of a washerwoman, and falls in love with her. Consequently,
they cancel their engagement, and each marries the partner of his choice. Too late, they discover
their inability to adjust to another social set: Tom has difficulty in the world of opera, fashionable
cabarets, and concerts of Iris; while Shamrock is ill at ease at a formal dinner party and becomes
intoxicated. One night, after a party, Tom and Shamrock sneak off to Coney Island where they
become stranded on a Ferris wheel; returning home, they find Richard and Iris awaiting them. Tom
declares his love for Shamrock, and a fight between Tom and Dick is interrupted by a fire. Following
Iris' rescue by Dick, divorces are obtained; Tom marries Shamrock; and Richard, Iris.
