A spectacular performance!
2 March 2007 | by ancientnutSee all my reviews

This is the first Pauline Frederick movie I have ever seen and, since very few of her films survive, it might be the only one I ever have an opportunity to view. This film changes gradually from a romantic comedy to a romantic tragedy. A very good cast, including Malcolm McGregor, Laura La Plante, and especially Tully Marshall, provides excellent support, but my rating is based on the performance of Ms. Frederick, which is nothing short of breathtaking! I have seen many silent movies and I don't believe I have ever seen an actress achieve the extraordinary emotional range that the 41-year-old Ms. Frederick did in this film. It makes one mourn for the loss of most of her screen work. Very highly recommended.
