Storyline

Released only a short time after the Titanic went down, this was cutting-edge drama for its day. The flick itself was a screen adaptation of a play George Marlow himself had produced in Australia the previous year. Bearing remarkable similarities to the plot of The Silence of Dean Maitland, it played-up two social aspects for which Marlow was long associated - sex and scandal! Murder, adultery, theft, surprise confessions and alcoholism all played a significant part here in the tale of a woman from most definitely the wrong part of town, who seduces an innocent young clergyman. You just didn't DO those things in 1912! Well to cut a long story short, Miss Guilford does JUST that and spends the rest of the film rueing her actions. Written by Noel Bailey <uds3@hotmail.com>

Scandal is no stranger, even in an age past!
24 November 2001 | by See all my reviews

I have pretty much covered the groundwork of this "saucy little flick" (by 1912 standards) in the 'Summary' above (It was probably the "R" or "X" certificate release of its day!)

The seduction of a member of the clergy was not within the guidelines of "entertainment" in 1912 and in fact George Marlow had incurred the wrath of various sections of society with his stage play of the same name the previous year.

I am led to believe no copies of this film remain, save for some restored fragments. If any reader has an update on that I would be most interested to hear.
