Given that silent star Mary Miles Minter was famous for her wide, deep-blue eyes, it's not surprising that many of her films incorporated the word "Eyes" in their titles. In Eyes of the Heart, Minter is cast as a sightless young lady, led to believe that the world is a fairy-tale wonderland. Upon regaining her sight, she quickly realizes that much of the world is ugly and unpleasant -- and that the three "Prince Charmings" in her life are a trio of petty criminals. Disillusioned, she falls in with a safecracker who intends to exploit her heightened sense of touch. She is rescued by her erstwhile protectors, who have fortuitously reformed in time for a happy ending.
