AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It imparts a universal and moral lesson. There are rogues in every land who ruin women, and who regard their exploits with delight, but they adopt a totally different attitude when their own sisters are affected, though, of course, in all cases the women pay the penalty. That is the foundation on which this film is constructed. The teaching is demonstrated in a commendably urbane manner, and even the faintest suggestion of impropriety is not allowed to obtrude itself. Unlike most men of this type, the hero of the story proves that he has good qualities, and though his passionate resolution to revenge his sister's disgrace burned as fiercely as a flambeau, yet when his own discreditable conduct was recalled to him his hatred ceased and was transformed into a love which prompted him try make amends and to marry the girl he betrayed. A happy finale is thus provided to a series of exciting episodes.'
