The story of a roué, as told by the Biograph camera. He sickens of the fawning sycophants about him, and, accidentally discovering a piece of sculpture, he expresses a desire to see the sculptress, hoping to amuse himself with a new face. He finds she is blind, and her purity prevents his carrying out his evil designs. He asks her to marry him, but she refuses, finally consenting, however. The scenes are worked out with excellent attention to detail and the picture is unusually attractive. The audience sits almost breathless through some of the scenes, notably the one where she rejects his first offer of marriage. - The Moving Picture World, March 13, 1909
This sermon is squeezed down to fit a pre-arranged shape in the form of an 8 minute film. It is contrived, lacking in any form of substance or entertainment value. Each scene was a chore to watch, and I can only say that the quality of the writing was somewhat to be desired.
