Storyline

Accomplished portrait painter Clementina Wing, sacrifices all self-interest to her art, complies with the request of Tommy Burgrave, a fellow artist, that she paint a portrait of Tommy's wealthy Uncle Quixtus, whose unhappy life has made him unsociable. Quixtus is about to be taken advantage of by Lena Fontaine, an adventuress, when Clem intervenes. At a dinner party given by Quixtus, Clem is transformed from her drab dowdiness into a dazzling young woman and impresses Quixtus with her charms. Will Hammersley, an old friend whom Quixtus had suspected of an affair with his wife, dies and entrusts his daughter to Clementina and Quixtus. At first Quixtus declines the responsibility, but the child arouses Clem's instinct of motherhood; she marries Quixtus and they accept the child as their own. Written by Pamela Short
