Morality tale exploring false aspirations of society
17 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very crudely made morality tale of a young college girl who is made a fuss of by a society sorority because she happens to have known a woman in society. She is very flattered and despite being in over her head in terms of financially keeping up with her wealthier sisters, she schemes how to do just that, stooping to theft.

There is a melodramatic twist and a happy ending. There are no close-ups, so Norma's performance is not as well documented as it might be in what is a juicy role for her.

The DVD print is fuzzy and washed out in part. This runs just under two complete reels (18 and a half minutes). One of 25 short films Norma would make in 1914.
