Storyline

In the early part of the Nineteenth Century, Beau Brummell was the most talked-of person in all the world, the extreme of fashion, the personification of elegance and the most pretentious individual imaginable. Helen, the daughter of Lord Ballarat, falls a victim to his charms, although she is warned by the Duchess of Devonshire, against him. Beau, not the least disconcerted, persists in his attentions to Helen and proposes to her. He is an intimate of the Prince of Wales and all the nobility of the period. They copy his style and ape his manners. Lord Devonshire and the Prince of Wales are very close friends, and when Beau Brummel insults the prince, the lord forbids Helen seeing Beau until he apologizes to the prince. Helen pleads with him to make amends to his highness, but he refuses, rather than disregard his own conceit or sacrifice his overbearing pride. The prince does not fail to resent Beau Brummel's effrontery and through him, Beau's privileges and importance are very much ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Will warm the hearts of every discerning spectator
31 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The delightfully engaging portrait of Beau Brummel given to us by James Young in this picture will warm the hearts of every discerning spectator. This is much, but there is little else in the picture and we dare not commend it as an offering to the gallery; because there is little suspense and it tells no dear story. Even the acting of the supporting cast serves solely as a frame to the central figure. Julia Swayne Gordon as the duchess and Clara K. Young as Helen will stand out more than the others. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
