Storyline

Passing into a cabaret show with a gay party of friends, Winnie Alden, acting on a sudden impulse, takes a little flower girl with her. This causes much joking among her companions, who cannot understand what has come over her. A chance remark of the little girl's shows Winnie what a false life she is leading, and she decides to abandon it. Edward Ferris, her man-friend, laughs at her when she tells him her intention and insultingly asks her to come to him when she needs money. Good luck attends Winnie, who obtains a typist's position in a city office. She lives very happily in a boarding-house and cuts herself off entirely from all her former companions. While working here she meets Roy Dayton, who falls in love with her, and after a time proposes marriage to her. His earnest pleading wins her consent and she is looking forward to the wedding day.

Lacks the real objectivity of art
9 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A picture by Leah Baird that gives her a splendid chance to portray the heart of a woman, but the portrayal lacks the real objectivity of art and therefore makes a narrow appeal. It was necessary to have this character grip the hearts of the audience in order to make the story truly dramatic, and it fails to do this. All others in the picture are kept in the background, are mere figures. We have first the fast club man whom the woman loves, or thinks she does and with whom she is going to the devil. Then, most pleasingly suggested, comes the woman's awakening. In this touch there is a sincerity that does the authoress much credit and shows that she knows how to write for the people, even if she doesn't always. Then we have the other, the good man, who is quite flat, and then the unimaginative ending. Van Dyke Brooke produced it. The scenes and the photography are good. - The Moving Picture World, May 31, 1913
