Storyline

Part One: The leader of a band of smugglers, Prince Dalamere, an unprincipled adventurer, learns that more money is needed to finance his enterprises, and seeks for a rich and beautiful wife. Meeting Josephine Chester, he at once conceives an ardent admiration for her and determines that at any cost and by any means, she shall be his bride. When he proposes to her, Josephine tells him that although she is free, she will not for a moment think of marrying him. She instinctively distrusts the man and dislikes even to have him near her. Georgia Rivers, the sister of Josephine, and wife of James Rivers, a prominent businessman, is obsessed by a passion for gambling, which has so run away with her that she is heavily in debt. She determines to offset her previous losses by a bet on a horse race, and telephones to a friendly bookmaker, who promises to keep her informed of the progress of the race.

Will make the picture remembered by all who see it
14 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a great story, portrayed in a manner that will make the picture remembered by all who see it. There are two reels of straight drama, not a line of comedy in it. It would be difficult to overpraise the acting of those who make this picture, for it is in the interpretation of the script that the chief distinction of this film lies. There are five persons who do the brunt of the work. They are L. Rogers Lytton, Edith Storey, E.K. Lincoln, Harry Northrup and Anita Stewart, The second reel is a succession of big situations. The climax, where Miss Storey goes to her married sister, Miss Stewart, and, unaware that her brother-in-law, Mr, Northrup, is present in the room, asks how "it is all going to end," is one of unusual power. The appeal of the gambling but otherwise innocent wife for the forgiveness of her husband is a dramatic gem. The thought would not, will not, down. What possibilities there are in this play and with this cast for the stage? No man or woman concerned with the art of dramatic expression should miss seeing "A Prince of Evil." - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
