Storyline

Nina secures a position with a theatrical company through Paul's influence. The two fall in love and become engaged. Paul is stricken with an illness which necessitates expensive treatment. Nina learns that $1,000 is offered to the person who will submit to an experimental operation which may mean permanent disfigurement. To save Paul's life, his sweetheart takes up the offer. Brent, the surgeon who performs the operation, falls in love with Nina. To part the lovers, he informs Paul, who later calls to inquire about Nina, that she has lost her beauty forever. Brent also intercepts Paul's letters, causing the girl to believe that he no longer loves her. When Nina recovers, she finds that her beauty is unmarred. Brent asks her to be his wife. Impelled by gratitude, Nina marries him. Later, the doctor resigns from the hospital staff and engrosses himself in experimental work. He utterly neglects Nina. Brent's conduct finally becomes such that his wife leaves him and returns to the stage.... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is a good vehicle for the beautiful leading woman
30 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-part offering is the first of a prospective series to feature Alice Joyce. It tells a story of two true lovers separated by the lying work of a third party, a doctor, who then marries the heroine, a beautiful actress. This doctor as a character hampers the picture. He is not a convincing villain, but does at the close a sensational and convincing enough death-fall over the banisters. This opens the way for the happy ending in which the actor and the actress can marry and be forever after, etc. It is a good vehicle for the beautiful leading woman, Alice Joyce, who is photographed in many lovely scenes, in which she is herself the thing of greatest beauty. It is a pretty picture rather than a deep or true one. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
