Allegory is a storytelling form little used in cinema today, but it popped up frequently during the silent era, especially before the '20s kicked in. This particular film was based on a morality play by Walter Browns. Everywoman (Violet Heming) is on a quest for love, but Flattery (Raymond Hatton) convinces her to go on the stage. Other temptations and distractions that stand in her way include Wealth (Theodore Roberts), Passion (Irving Cummings) and Dissipation (Fred Huntley). Finally, she discovers that Love is a humble young physician (Monte Blue). Although the premise to this film sounds corny now, some of the casting still fascinates; the dark, delectable Bebe Daniels is a fetching choice for Vice!
