Society-girl thrill seeker Lydia causes the death of motorcycle policeman and is prosecuted by her fiancé Daniel who describes in lurid detail the downfall of Rome. While she's in prison she reforms and Daniel becomes a wasted alcoholic.
The Great Profile - John Barrymore - appears in this semi-noirish silent crime meller. While the picture may be dated (as silent movies go), Barrymore is simply spellbinding.
This was before drink destroyed his looks and concentration, and he looks simply magnificent - certainly the most handsome silent movie star at a time when a chocolate face was the preeminent criteria for movie stardom.
Barrymore is a the only reason viewers may have for seeing this film, but it is reason enough.
