For a silent movie, music plays an important part in it, with a private music recital and a public orchestra performance giving the mood for two scenes. Most significantly, music records with three different types of music are prominently displayed in the hands of two main actors, and are intrinsic to the story development. See more »

The Plot is like those of Modern Day Romance Drama's
Today, many modern day romance drama's are about an average girl who likes a guy, but isn't enough for him. In this movie, Beth, is a very conservative wife to her husband Robert, but she is very controlling about what he does. Instead of balancing their lives together, she has taken total control over his life, making him unhappy. Every time he tries to let her relax and loosen up, does she make a big fuss about how he doesn't like who she is. Then, he meets with an old friend again and they instantly connect and their sparks are flying just like they would in a modern day movie. The music really helps to make the tone of each scene. When Beth decides to kind of "live on the wild side," it just gives the impression that many woman are more likely to change their appearance for a guys attention. But in all respects, not every woman is like that. Its mostly for the affect that writers put that scenario into their plots. All in all it was a decent movie, very dramatic for the 1920s. Slow start, but ended pretty well.
