A rare glimpse into the Mary Miles Minter phenomenon.
Few films starring Mary Miles Minter exist, and even fewer are in wide circulation. Viewing this film, it's easy to see why Mary Miles Minter became such a star. She is lovely to look at and absolutely charming on screen.
As the other reviewer mentioned, the surviving print has some moments in absolutely dire condition. But Minter's talent and charm overcome this and make this rare opportunity to witness Minter's talent something no movie fan or historian should miss.
This film is also important because while many are familiar with the scandal that destroyed Mary's career (through no fault of hers, I might add,) few have experienced her first-hand, and this is a perfect example of Mary's charisma, and the style of silent film before 1920.
