Breach of promise racket highlights revenge plot.

This is an interesting tale of revenge. A shopgirl is unjustly jailed for shoplifting and upon release, organizes a breach of promise racket to get back at society. The Library of Congress and the Gosfilmofond of Russia have copies, although the latter location is unconfirmed. The above information was supplied through Greta de Groat's website on Norma Talmadge.
