A Manhattan playboy falls in love with a mysterious European woman, whom he notices as an exact double for a famous socialite who disappeared at the turn of the century. At first, he thinks it's just pure coincidence, as the beautiful young woman he's currently romancing is much younger than the woman who vanished years before, but soon, he begins to believe that maybe it's not such a coincidence after all.

The book Janet (Clara Bow) reads is the flapper novel Flaming Youth by Samuel Hopkins Adams. Adams used the pseudonym 'Warner Fabian' for this book and one other, worried that controversy over the female sexuality contained within could ruin his reputation as an author. Flaming Youth (1923) was made into the 1923 film of the same name. See more »
An early romantic melodrama with something to say -come again?
An enigmatic young woman becomes the talk of Jazz Age Manhattan when it appears she's the same socialite who left New York for Europe decades before. They actually are one and the same thanks to x-ray treatments that reverse the ageing process but will her new beau care once he finds out? Like ARE PARENTS PEOPLE? made the following year, the movie's trying to say something about age-ism but I'm not sure if the point was made because it's missing the last reel. Still, I enjoyed what I saw thanks to its star, the extravagantly beautiful Corrine Griffith, and it's impossible to look away whenever Clara Bow's flirtatious flapper appears on screen.
