Rupert Julian was both star and director of the episodic historical drama Naked Hearts. The story begins in Colonial America, when the romance between young Cecil (Julian) and Maude (Francelia Billington) is broken up by the feud between their respective families. Comes the American Revolution, and Cecil is reported killed in action. Heartbroken, Maude enters a convent, intending to take the vows of sisterhood. But Cecil returns safe and sound, drawing Maude back into the outside world by singing her favorite song outside her convent window. The film was a reasonably literal translation of Alfred Lord Tennyson's narrative poem Maude.
