Trivia

According to press releases, the story for the film was specifically written for Mae Murray by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez. In fact, Ibáñez had seen Fascination (1922) (it had been a box office sensation in Spain), and was so inspired by Murray's screen presence that he write a story specifically for her, based on the Greek myth of Circe.

A Tragic Loss for Silent Cinema
11 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Circe, enchantress of ancient times, turned men into swine by magic. The modern Circe, Cecilie Brunne (Mae Murray), accomplishes similar results by liquor. ... Cecilie, disillusioned at 18 after she leaves a convent school in New Orleans, swears that all men will pay for what she has lost. Untouched by the desire she arouses, she torments her victims and levies tribute. Only one man, Dr. Van Martyn (James Kirkwood), withstands her charms. Piqued at first, she at last becomes desperate, finds life impossible without his love, and gives a wild party at her Long Island villa. At the height of a drunken, gambling, dancing orgy, Cecilie realizes she cannot go on with this life, and she retires to the New Orleans convent. One day she is run over while saving the life of a child, and it is feared that she will never walk again. When the test comes, Dr. Van Martyn walks into the room, and Cecilie stumbles her way to his arms.

This silent 1924 drama was produced by Tiffany Productions and released through Metro-Goldwyn Pictures Corporation. Starring the beautiful and popular actress, Mae Murray, the loss of this film is a tragic one for silent cinema.
