Storyline

Love with a romance is by far more interesting than the ordinary article. While the romantic part of it is not always intentional it is undoubtedly desirable, so, when the hero, Jack, son of a wealthy and eminently aristocratic father, finds himself in love with the heroine, a chorus girl, we find ourselves interested in the story. The young girl is of irreproachable character, poor but ambitious to make her way in life and succeed in her chosen profession. She applies to a prominent manager for a chance to show her ability to act, and she impresses him very favorably, but he cannot give her the desired opportunity. She leaves her name and address with him for future reference. The manager is a personal friend of Jack's father, and while visiting him Jack comes in and the conversation turns to the stage.

Perhaps it will be called the strongest film of the week
4 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A powerfully dramatic picture, acted with remarkable expression, the intense emotional scenes rising above the ordinary in motion pictures. It tells the story of a young actress who sacrificed her dearest hope to insure the happiness of others, yet in the end is victor through her own sacrifice. Perhaps it will be called the strongest film of the week. At least such an opinion of it will not be far wrong. It seems well balanced, and it is done so well that it carries one along irresistibly, holding the attention and arousing the emotions as few films are able to do. The staging is superbly done and the photographer has performed his part to perfection. It is therefore, above the common run of pictures and will assuredly please any audience that cares for good acting. - The Moving Picture World, October 8, 1910
