Storyline

On his brother Vance's graduation from college, Guy Lansing Reynolds, a lawyer, promises to take him on a trip to Paris. When the time for leaving comes, Guy finds he cannot accompany Vance and, promising to follow shortly, sends the young man on alone. In Paris, Vance falls into the toils of Vera, an adventuress, and follows her to the "Schwarzwald Haus" in the Black Forest. She accepts his attentions and leads him to believe she returns his love. Prince Eugen, an old and wealthy friend of Vera's, arrives at the inn where they are staying. She must have rank and fortune, and returns to Paris with the prince, leaving a note for Vance telling of her intentions and adding that she no longer cares for him. Disillusioned, the young man shoots himself on the very day his brother arrives at the little German town. Guy learns from the innkeeper the story of Vance's death and swears vengeance on the faithless Vera. Following out his plan, he goes to Paris and there makes her acquaintance ...

Splendidly acted
21 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A special feature in two parts, which is splendidly acted and produced by a star cast, directed by Captain Harry Lambert. The embellishments of this picture are more than ordinarily lavish and it seems too bad to waste so much talent and expenditure on a plot of morbid construction. Naomi Childers does some very strong work in the character of the adventuress, who eventually pays the price of her machinations. - The Moving Picture World, November 21, 1914
