- Summaries (1)
Grace Pendleton, a charming girl but somewhat nervous and very unsophisticated, is to be married to George Lee. Her school friend, June Fairfax, comes to be Grace's maid of honor. But when June and Lee meet they recognize each other, though they hide their recognition from the Pendletons. They had met before under circumstances that precluded their even knowing each other's names and yet in that meeting they had known each other as mates and had kissed only to be separated. Neither knew where to find the other and each buried the secret and now they are thrown together, he, the bridegroom, she, the maid of honor. After the meeting June and Lee struggle bravely to carry themselves through the ordeal, though various circumstances make this difficult indeed. The evening before the wedding we see them go through the rehearsal of the ceremony. Grace retires to her room with a headache. June also retires after accidentally dropping a rose she has been wearing. After reaching her room June wonders whether Lee will think she has dropped the rose for a purpose. Then she wonders whether he picked it up and is tempted to go and see. Upon reaching the hall she finds Lee kissing the rose and turns to flee but he is past restraint. He seizes her wrist and they are lost. Emotion has sway and June agrees to elope with him. They are convinced that Grace will recover from the blow, that she does not feel very deeply anyway and their own happiness is paramount. June gets her traveling bag and they are about to leave the house when Grace comes on the scene, walking in her sleep. While June and Lee stand to one side the sleeping girl goes through her part of the marriage ceremony as it had been rehearsed. The madness of June and Lee disappears. At the end June leads the still sleeping Grace up to her own room. Then she goes down to Lee again and with a wordless look of chastened understanding, they separate. In the last scene we are shown the wedding ceremony and June is truly a maid of honor.
