She is taken into a nearby house, which turns out to be the studio of Charles Lindgard, a young American artist.

It has been richly staged
19 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A melodramatic story of people of wealth and others. Its heroine is the daughter of a French count and its hero is an American painter. They fall in love, but the girl must marry a rich man. In the end the painter saves her from marrying a bigamist and they are happy ever after. It has been richly staged and in most of the scenes has been intelligently handled. The acting is very fair. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
