Storyline

A young woman, captivated by the handsome presence and engaging manners of a French artist is ready to take him for her husband, when a call of art and business takes him to Paris. Offended by his willingness to leave her, the young woman marries another suitor, an American, whom she does not love but who is very much in love with her. Later her newly-made husband is also called to the French capital. The artist and his former admirer meet in the latter's studio. While posing in the studio in a Carmen costume the artist attempts to take liberties with her. She resents them and begins to recognize the true character of the man. She now turns to her husband, whose open and manly ways she finds contrast very favorably with those of the unprincipled artist. The husband, at first prone to resent her long indifference to him, yields to the entreaties of his wife, and as the new day is born the dawn of their own lives begins.

Will be commended by those in the community whose opinion is most valuable in the long run
9 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

A special release feature picture in two reels that surely is more dignified and more artistic than nine-tenths of the stuff shown along Broadway and at two dollars a seat. It takes up a delicate question but deals with it in a wise and wholesome way that will be commended by those in the community whose opinion is most valuable in the long run. Such a picture is worthwhile and justifies the producer's care, something he can take pleasure in. The story is of people in society. A young girl (Leah Baird) loves an artist, but her mother wants her to marry a man of wealth. There's a lover's quarrel and she marries, out of pique, her mother's choice and is discontented. Later, as one playing with dangerous fire, she poses in Carmencita costume for a drawing by the artist. In this scene Miss Baird is exceptionally strong. She makes what comes of it most convincing, and shows how truly an artist she is. The outcome, showing her husband's worth against the artist's who gives way to his passion, makes her fall in love with her husband. It is surely a feature of the real kind. - The Moving Picture World, December 21, 1912
