Actress Audrey Munson, whose chief claim to fame was her voluptuous figure, was the star of the Thanhouser five-reeler Inspiration. Munson was appropriately cast as a feckless country girl who achieves fame and fortune as an artist's model. A sculptor falls madly in love with her, and after several standard complications he manages to marry her. Obviously, there was no "mystery" between sculptor and model, since it is implied that Munson does most of her posing in the nude. In fact, according to the reviewer for the trade magazine Variety, the actress displayed more on-screen epidermis than any previous female performer, including the actress who played "The Naked Truth" in director Lois Weber's notorious Hypocrites.
