Unremarkable short film derived from longer original

This film is viewable on video but only in the two-reel shortened version (24 minutes). After Valentino's stardom the film was cut down to include his scenes only and title cards tried to patch up the plot. The complete version was not available for viewing. It's a simple tale of a poor fisherman's daughter whose family believes she may have a pedigree. She is groomed by a society matron, saves a wealthy woman's son (Valentino) from drowning and of course they fall in love. Then it turns out she isn't really royalty and runs away (Cinderella-like) from the Prince. All turns out happily in the end. Carmel Meyers and Valentino appear together for the second time (All Night was the first) and play well together and separately. Again he essays the role of a romantic lead adequately. The film is nothing great and probably only of interest to Valentino fans.
