Storyline

Janet Hall begins a romance with Dale Overton, a small town minister, after the death of Henry Dalton, with whom she had an illegitimate child. At first, because of her past, she refuses to marry him, but then, after listening to his sermons about forgiveness, she consents, although she makes sure that he knows nothing of her history. Finally, however, he does find out about her relationship with Henry, and just as Janet feared he might, he renounces his wife. Defending Janet, Dale's friend, Stuart Doane, accuses the minister of spreading the word about tolerance without actually believing it himself. Dale realizes his hypocrisy, and then, after forgiving Janet, sees through her recovery from a breakdown brought on by the sudden disclosure of her past and by the subsequent strain on her marriage.

Trivia

The Hidden Scar ( 1916 ) was one of the incomplete silent films discovered in Dawson City, Canada. More than 500 reels of nitrate film were discovered in 1978, frozen after having been buried for over forty nine years. The National Archives of Canada, in cooperation with the Library of Congress, was able to thaw out, dry the reels, and hasten their transfer to acetate film stock. See more »
