Philip ( Wilfred Lucas ), a powerfully built Greek, falls in love with Toinette ( Carmel Myers ), a French girl whom he meets when she is injured in an auto accident. Later, as a result of the accident, she is hospitalized and operated upon and then recovers. A hospital attendant misinforms Philip that Toinette has died, however, and the Greek, keeping a pledge to his love, continues to sing beneath her hospital room window every night at midnight. Meanwhile, a gang has been terrorizing a park near the hospital, and one night during a confrontation with the police, the leader is knifed and taken to the same doctor who has arranged for Toinette to enter the hospital. While at the hospital, the leader recognizes Philip as the person who slipped him a pack of cigarettes when he was hospitalized earlier, during Toinette's stay. The gangster informs Philip that his love is alive and well. The Greek rushes to Toinette, who had been told that Philip had returned to Greece, and the lovers are reunited.
This 1917 silent drama was based on the short story "Orpheus" by Samuel Hopkins Adams, directed by Tod Browning and Wilfred Lucas, starring Wilfred Lucas and Carmel Myers. The survival status of A Love Sublime is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
