Storyline

"Nothing for you today," was what the girl heard in each theatrical office and agency where she applied for an engagement. Weary and despairing, she at last called at a theater where a Shakespearean star was rehearsing. The doorkeeper rudely rebuffed her, but fortunately the star's attention was attracted, and he went up and talked to her. The actor was a good-hearted chap, and his sympathy was aroused. He "tried her out," and as she made good, a regular position was given her. She did not become his leading lady, because she did not have the ability. As an actress she was just ordinary, but she was sweet and pretty and won the heart of a most presentable young millionaire, who was extremely happy when she consented to become his bride. Some years later, on her return from a long trip abroad, the former actress was shocked to learn that the star was in financial difficulties. The public no longer cared for Shakespeare.

Not the best use that can be made of the motion picture camera
4 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The Thanhouser people have always been very successful in picturing theatrical people. Here is another offering of this kind and it is even better than most of them have been. Its hero (Howard Kyle) is a Shakespearean star who finds himself unable to get work. The heroine (Miss Flo La Badie) is an ex-actress who has married a millionaire (William Russell). The rich woman discovers her old friend in distress and there's a revival of "Twelfth Night," an out-door presentation, in which he is given the role of Malvolio. The story is not tensely dramatic; but accents scene-making. Some of its scenes are fine. This, in a way, is a legitimate aim; but it is not the best use that can be made of the motion picture camera. If Thanhouser stories were, as a rule, up to Thanhouser scene-making, its product would be, we feel very sure, even more deservedly popular than now. - The Moving Picture World, September 21, 1912
