Plot Summary

This big and thrilling emotional drama shows the cabaret life along the "gay White Way" and the dangers that confront an ambitious girl in a great city. Metropolitan characters abound and the scenes - the cabaret - the stage - behind the scenes - are not only the essence of realism, but as such they will prove a revelation to those unfamiliar with Broadway, the most famous street in the world. This picture is truly tremendous. Its prologue alone will make it famous. Scenes in ancient Rome, with Christian maidens literally thrown to the lions to make sport for the degenerate Emperor Nero, are depicted with a fidelity that will bring gasps of admiration and thrills of suspense from your patrons. - Motion Picture News, April 15, 1916. Written by Pamela Short
