Storyline

Scott Seagrave and his sister Geraldine are left the family estate when their wealthy alcoholic father dies. Unfortunately, they've also inherited his problems with alcohol, so they stay at the estate in seclusion. When Geraldine reaches "coming-out" age, Scott throws her a coming-out party. However, one of the men after her hand in marriage, Jack Dysart, tricks her into taking a drink, and she winds up embarrassing and humiliating herself in front of an old family friend, Duane Mallett, whose daughter Sylvia is in love with Jack, even though he's treated her shabbily. Geraldine finally figures out a way in which she, Sylvia and Duane can get what they all want. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

A Sad Loss For Silent Film Fans
7 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Geraldine Seagrave ( Elsie Ferguson ) and her brother Scott ( Edmund Burns ) have inherited the family estate after their father's death along with his predisposition for the bottle . They live a secluded life until Geraldine is the right age for her coming out party. During the party, prospective suitor Jack Dysart ( Crauford Kent ) prompts Geraldine to take a drink, and the girl ends up embarrassing herself in front of an old friend , Duane Mallet ( Mahlon Hamilton ). Duane's sister Sylvia ( Gertrude McCoy ) who is still very much in love with Jack , seeks Geraldine's help in winning him back. Geraldine tricks Jack into marrying Sylvia, then accepts Duane's marriage proposal, that saves her from the inherited curse of alcohol ...

Sadly, The Danger Mark , a Famous Players-Lasky produced silent film based on a dramatic play is now lost . It boasted two big silent film stars , Elsie Ferguson and Gertrude McCoy , both of whom careers did not survive talking pictures .
