Storyline

In order to save the life of her uncle, who has been taken prisoner by the Prussians, Miriam de Lorme is ordered to forward to the German general the plans of the French army, which her chateau overlooks. The inhabitants of the district are ordered to move out of the firing zone, and Miriam realizes that she will not be able to draw the plans and thus save her uncle, if she vacates her chateau. Hitting upon a plan, she offers the chateau as a hospital to the French commander, knowing that she will be safe under the protection of the Red Cross flag. She obtains his consent and hoists the flag upon the turret of the chateau. On the commander's staff are several young officers, one of whom, Captain Lepard, sees in Miriam the ideal of his dreams and loses no time in showing his admiration for her.

The dilemma of the girl is a study which will please
5 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An elaborately worked out film depicting an episode supposed to have occurred during the Franco-Prussian War. It is interesting because it suggests graphically some of the problems which confronted people in that memorable conflict. The scenery is good and some of the pictures about the château have a quality which makes them interesting merely as pictures, apart from any connection they may have with the story. The dilemma of the girl is a study which will please, while her final determination to make a clean breast of the situation relieves all of whatever difficulty her previous duplicity may have caused. The love story gives the film heart interest and the pictorial quality, with the suggestion of war, combine to heighten it. - The Moving Picture World, April 15, 1911
