Louis Rousseau ( Henry Harmon ) believes that the technically perfect music of his violin protégé, Tom Richards ( Joseph Striker ), lacks a soul because Tom has not suffered. He then convinces Rosalie Anjou ( Martha Mansfield ), whom Tom saved from apaches and now loves, that she must dance at the notorious Moulin Rouge to earn the money Tom needs for his lessons. While keeping Tom in the dark of her activities, Rosalie becomes a great success and is selected Queen of the Moulin Rouge. Rousseau takes Tom to the coronation and, as he hoped, Tom denounces Rosalie and pours his pain and rage into his music. Rousseau professes his scheme and Tom rushes to the banks of the Seine just in time to save Rosalie from a watery grave.
Queen of the Moulin Rouge (1922) is listed as complete and is housed at the Archives Du Film Du CNC.
