Beauty and the Rogue afforded Mary Miles Minter the opportunity to play a dual role, which delighted the actress' legions of fans and confounded her detractors, who felt that she didn't even have the talent to play one role. When her boyfriend gives her some valuable jewels as an engagement present, debutante Minter is convinced that he stole the gems. Actually, they are stolen, but the hero didn't know that when he purchased them. Her efforts to simultaneously prove her sweetheart's guilt and to clear his name require Minter to disguise herself as a boy, a neat trick considering the actress' dazzling beauty and "perfect" figure. Originally filmed under the title Mlle. Tiptoe, Beauty and the Rogue was one of ten 1918 releases directed by Henry King.
