Charm ( Elsie MacLeod ) and Valor ( Thomas Meighan ) fall in love and are married. Jealousy ( Pauline Frederick ), however, is angry at their happiness and decides to ruin their marriage, so she arranges for Charm to find an old photograph of her husband's former sweetheart Forgotten . Valor is also led to mistrust Charm, and the two return to their respective parents: his, Finance ( Frank Losee ) and Display ( Ina Rorke ), and hers, Commerce ( Charles Wellesley ) and Pride ( Isabel O'Madigan ). While Charm spends her days with Sorrow ( Grace Barton ), Treachery ( Edwin Sturgis ) endeavours to ruin Valor by luring him to a disreputable roadhouse, and when Valor's father tries to bring him home, the young man strikes his father with a bottle. The two sets of parents are in the midst of a financial battle when Charm gives birth to a child, Happiness. The child reunites the couple, and Madame Jealousy, along with her servants Mischief ( Frances Cappelano ), Treachery and Rumor ( Marcia Harris ), finally are banished.
This interesting 1918 silent drama was written by George V. Hobart and Eve Unsell, produced by the Famous Players Film Company, starring Pauline Frederick, Thomas Meighan, Frank Losee, Charles Wellesley, Isabel O'Madigan, and Elsie MacLeod. Like many American films of the time, Madame Jealousy was subject to cuts by city and state film censorship boards. The Chicago Board of Censors required a cut, in Reel 4, of an intoxicated young woman rising from a table and staggering towards a man. Sadly, Madame Jealousy now remains a lost silent film.
