Storyline

Lloyd Stanwood, a young reporter, is assigned by the managing editor to interview a famous actress, by the name of Alice Gordon. He lands the interview, secures her photograph and finds himself fin love at the close of the session. When a telephone announcement is sent in to the paper that Miss Gordon is engaged to Mr. Riche, Stanwood is disconcerted, especially when the rest of the boys join in a hearty laugh at the expense of his discomfiture. Miss Gordon denies this rumor to Stanwood when he asks her for its confirmation. Two weeks later, Alice Gordon is injured in an automobile accident. Stanwood goes to the hospital, interrogates the nurse, is very much relieved when he learns that she is not fatally hurt. Some weeks after this interview, Miss Gordon leaves the hospital and goes to her home. She is a woman of ideas and to test the love of her many admirers, she disfigures her face with an ugly scar that would test the depth or superficiality of any man's pretension of affection. ...

It is one of the most beautiful pictures that this company has produced in some time
20 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

It is good to see Florence Turner in the Vitagraph pictures again. While there may be one or two other photoplay artists who excel her in certain ways, there is none who approaches her in mobility of expression, both of hands and face, or in ability to fill with meaning the moments that precede, for instance, a smile. Her part in this picture fits her perfectly. Mr. Costello, playing opposite to her, represents the awakening and deepening of passion in a man's heart very well. The story is not new, but that is an advantage, for its interest depends on characterization. On the whole, it is one of the most beautiful pictures that this company has produced in some time, and that is saying much. The scene where Alice Gordon breaks the stem of the rose would alone, it seems, be the making of a picture. - The Moving Picture World, July 1, 1911
