Storyline

George Barr and Howard Sloane, two young sculptors, are contenders in a prize contest for the most artistic statue to be finished and presented at the art school within the month. Neither one has sufficient capital to employ a model, but together they start out to find someone who will pose for the statue and take a chance on getting paid. They accidentally come upon a company of moving picture actors who are rehearsing a scene. In the company is Violet Horner, the leading lady. In her the boys see a wonderful subject for the statue. They make her acquaintance and after telling her the situation prevail upon her to pose for them. During the sittings the boys fall in love with her, but she cannot decide which one she likes best.

Behind the scenes views in the Imp studio
28 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

An unusual picture, giving behind the scenes views in the Imp studio. The two artists become jealous of each other, over a girl, and one attempts to wreck the other's prize statuette. A moving picture film ingeniously reveals the plot at the critical moment. Well acted and tells a good story. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
