Slow and unbelievable melodrama.
23 June 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Before achieving super-stardom with Cecil B. De Mille, Swanson was working for Triangle making little melodramas like this one. The story is ludicrous

  • Gloria is a penniless artist who fends off a rape, only to land in


prison when the rapist frames her for robbery. Upon release she joins the Salvation Army and meets and marries a wealthy young man. But her past returns to haunt her...

Swanson is very beautiful, but her talent is little utilized in this twaddle. Her leading man is uninteresting and the story slow moving and over titled. Camerawork is conventional at best. Only for the die-hard Swanson fan.
