Stage luminary Lenore Ulrich played the titular heroine in the Morosco-Paramount production Kilmeny. Kidnapped by gypsies as an infant, Kilmeny grows up unaware of the fact that she's the daughter of a wealthy family. Upon reaching adulthood, she is restored to her birth parents. But the call of the Open Road is too strong to resist, and soon Kilmeny has returned to her gypsy friends. On the verge of marrying the tribal chieftain (Herbert Standing), Kilmeny realizes that she's making a mistake and is fortuitously rescued by her real father. Even in 1915, this was a timeworn storyline, but Lenore Ulrich was attractive and personable enough to compensate for the film's many flaws.
