Storyline

Lucile Danvers, at the age of forty, still reigns as queen of her social set. Wealthy, aristocratic, supremely confident of her powers to thrill and charm, the first scene shows her in the reception room of her magnificent home, surrounded by admiring friends. A young girl just entering upon her first social duties, magnetizes everybody present and Lucile notes that a number of her heretofore faithful admirers have left her side to enjoy the companionship of this young girl. Lucile is determined to surmount the obstacles which age has thrown in her path. She gives a magnificent fete in which splendor and magnificence of royalty are mimicked by herself and friends in a grand costume ball. At the ball the young girl whose popularity has aroused the emotions of envy in Lucile's mind, repeats her heart conquests upon this occasion. The proud spirit of Lucile is almost crushed. In her luxurious chamber, she views in visionary scenes her past successes and conquests for a score of years. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Love wins against time
13 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-part picture play which is somewhat of a society drama, written by W.E. Wing, in which he demonstrates how love wins against time. E.A. Martin has directed it with all attention to details. Eugenie Besserer is featured and William Stowell ably supports her. It is a story of a woman who in her youth, obsessed with a proud spirit, sends her lover away and he departs for India on a tiger hunt. She hears news of his death and locks the iron gates of her beautiful rose garden where they last met. Twenty years later she throws open the gates and enters the garden. Her lover recovers from his injuries and coincidentally returns and enters the open gate, so love wins the race against time. The scenes and photography are beautiful. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
