Della Arnold ( Mae Murray ) graduates from a dramatic school and joins a travelling company. While driving through a storm to their engagement in the next town, she and actor Julian Lawrence ( Philo McCullough ) are compelled to stop at an inn for the night, where he tries to attack her, but she forcefully repels him. In New York, Myrtle Harris ( Claire Du Brey ) introduces Della to George Addison ( Arthur Shirley ), who secures a job for her as a model for artist Wilbur Henderson ( George Chesebro ). Della and Wilbur become engaged, but one evening, the artist meets Julian, who relates a highly embroidered version of what transpired at the inn. When George learns that Wilbur suddenly has broken with Della, he proposes to her, and she accepts on the condition that he hear of her past experience with Julian. She tells her story, and when his faith in her remains unshaken, Della happily accepts his hand.
This 1918 silent drama/romance was produced by The Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring popular silent screen actress Mae Murray. The survival status of Modern Love is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
