Storyline

The first friend that poor Nora, a slavey, ever has is Arthur Jordan, a struggling young playwright. From him she hears the first kind words ever spoken to her, and she is glad that such a kind, new boarder, has taken a room at the boarding house where she works. Contrary to the landlady's expressed wishes. Arthur lends Nora a book to read and tells her that he will defend her against her irate mistress if she scolds her. Nora is filled with gratitude toward him. When he finishes writing his play and takes it to the theatrical manager, only to be told that it cannot be produced, she tries to cheer him up.

The situation is not wholly convincing
9 June 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An acceptable two-part story through which, although the situation is not wholly convincing as shown and therefore does not get across with any "grip," there is a deeply interesting human drift. It is freshly conceived, clearly told, never drags and has a good romantic atmosphere. The truly interesting figure in it is the slavey, played by Norma Talmadge. She doesn't look anything like a slavey, except in the first scenes; but she puts over the emotional content of the developing situation strongly and makes a very pleasing human heart portrayal. The author is George C. Peterson and Van Dyke Brooke produced it. The camera work is good. - The Moving Picture World, March 21, 1914
