Summary
In this domestic drama, Claire Windsor stars as Marie, a self-effacing housewife who drives her husband David to distraction with constant devotion. David is pursued by a former flame, a calculating vamp intent on destroying his marriage. When he discovers the woman's evil plot, David reaffirms his love for Marie. This film by one of Hollywood's few women silent film directors is noteworthy for its attention to detail and masterful cross-cutting techniques. (Circulates)
