Storyline

Grace Pendleton, a charming girl but somewhat nervous and very unsophisticated, is to be married to George Lee. Her school friend, June Fairfax, comes to be Grace's maid of honor. But when June and Lee meet they recognize each other, though they hide their recognition from the Pendletons. They had met before under circumstances that precluded their even knowing each other's names and yet in that meeting they had known each other as mates and had kissed only to be separated. Neither knew where to find the other and each buried the secret and now they are thrown together, he, the bridegroom, she, the maid of honor.

Acting that shows delicate shades of meaning
18 June 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Truly a beautiful picture. The story is finely dramatic and in Bannister Merwin's best style and it was watched by an audience on Broadway with the closest interest. Its charm comes from the beauty of its playing and its perfect staging, and also from the romantic feeling of its action. Chas J. Brabin, its director, deserves as much credit as the author. Mark MacDermott plays a man who has met a woman, Mabel Trunnelle, has saved her from a fire; but has lost track of her. He is engaged to another woman, Bessie Learn, and she has invited her friend, Mabel, to be her maid of honor. The real action begins the day before the wedding, after Mark and Mabel have met again. It is made significant throughout by restrained acting that shows delicate shades of meaning and of feeling. Such acting provides an unobtrusive and subtle explanation to the action; it is like good lighting to a scene. Mrs. Wallace Erskine, Harry Eyting and Julian Reed, with others, have roles. The picture makes an excellent, desirable offering; one that is good to see and one that will stand out as something better than usual.
