Early warning of drug addiction
17 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Only a fragment is available on DVD - 9 minutes worth of a badly decomposing reel. This features Norma as the wife of an artist, who when frustrated, resorts to heroin to calm her nerves. She recommends it for her uptight husband, played by Tully Marshall. Soon he is addicted, hallucinating and forcing himself upon her with the needle to induce a mutual experience (she protests as it is only a recreational drug for her). He runs off in a state of madness.

A complete print exists at the Library of Congress - 35 mm - 5 reels. Original running time is 59 minutes.

More information about this and all films of Norma Talmadge, both extant and lost, can be found online at Stanford University's Greta DeGroat web site, devoted to Norma.
