Storyline

On her way to visit her newly-appointed guardian, whom she has never seen. Helen Russell is struck by an automobile and seriously injured. She is taken into a small bakery shop where Lillian Hardman, an orphan is employed. Lillian does all possible for the girl. After her removal to a hospital, Lillian finds a suitcase the officers had left behind, in which is a letter and papers from Arthur Truman, Helen's guardian. Learning from a newspaper that the girl, unidentified, has died. Lillian sees an opportunity to take the dead girl's place, pretend to be Helen Russell and leave the distasteful life of drudgery in the bakery. She accordingly carries out her plans, and finds Arthur Truman a decidedly prepossessing young man.

There is considerable suspense
24 June 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture drama which contains comedy elements in its construction but smacks of the "New Magdalen." Lillian Walker, Donald Hall, Lillian Burns and Denton Vane have the leading roles. There is considerable suspense engrafted in the plot, which the director has cleverly worked out to a pleasing termination. All the actors in the cast deserve credit for good work, as does the camera man. A very entertaining number. - The Moving Picture World, January 2, 1915
