Nita Naldi, Conrad Nagel, Hope Hampton

Young wife saves her husband from ruin when she manages to retrieve a cheque for a large sum of money that was given by him to a couple of fraudsters.

This now lost movie contained a short prologue where the protagonist wife (played by 1920s vamp Nita Naldi) is portrayed as an Egyptian queen, so that in the main story she is perceived as a modern-day Cleopatra.
