"Is Money Everything?" is a drama, included in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of Martha Mansfield, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.

John (Norman Kerry) is a country man who, although happily married, carries a lingering dissatisfaction with his life. One day he finds a partner and becomes a businessman. Then a New York city woman (Martha Mansfield) visiting the countryside observes John rein a seemingly unruly gang of disgruntled workers and is instantly attracted to him.

The sweet taste of money takes him to the big city, where he becomes a successful trader and makes a fortune in the stock market. In spite of living in luxury, his wife (Miriam Cooper) becomes increasingly unhappy, believing that money has changed him for the worse. After getting introduced into high society John meets Martha Mansfield again. She is on assignment from her husband to extract John's trading secrets, but instead falls in love with him.

John's wife becomes desperate to save him from the depraving influence of money and to end his involvement with another woman.

Martha Mansfield plays an excellent role as the unhappily married temptress looking for love.
