Pauline Frederick plays Audrey in this five-reel adaptation of the novel by Mary Johnston. In a true change of pace for the matronly Frederick, Audrey is a hoydenish gamine in the tradition of Mary Pickford. But upon falling in love with a titled Englishman, the heroine "grows up" quite prettily in a real hurry. It was suggested at the time that Famous Players was trying to transform Frederick into a "New Pickford" in anticipation of Frederick's defection to another studio. This hardly seems likely; perhaps Frederick was simply tired of playing wronged wives and tragic "other women."
