Louise Parke ( Mae Marsh ) runs away to Paris with her lover Stephen Underwood ( Jere Austin ), but because her mother, Mrs. Treadway Parke ( Florida Kingsley ), misses her so deeply, she sends a wire announcing her return home. When the boat on which she is scheduled to sail is torpedoed, Mrs. Parke's physician, Dr. Granville ( Alec B. Francis ), becomes concerned for Mrs. Parke's sanity and asks Peggy Murray ( Mae Marsh ), a newsstand girl who bears a remarkable likeness to Louise, to pose as the missing girl. At first the masquerade is successful; Mrs. Parke is happy and Peggy falls in love with George Landis ( Rod La Rocque ). Soon, however, Louise returns unharmed, and Peggy slips away quietly. George finds Peggy working in the department store owned by his father and proposes. On their honeymoon cruise, the couple is surprised to encounter two more newly married couples: Stephen who has wed Louise, and Mrs. Parke who has accepted Dr. Granville.
This 1918 silent drama/romance was produced by the Goldwyn Pictures Corporation, starring Mae Marsh in a dual role. I would love to know if this film still survives, as it is now listed as unknown on the list of lost silent films.
