Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Purple Lily is set in Canada, where a young engineer has been assigned to supervise construction of a mine. Though happily married, the engineer is quickly led astray by a local temptress (Kitty Gordon), who is in the employ of the owners of a rival mine. The woman manages to steal a valuable set of blueprints, leaving her "victim" to face the consequences. But sometime during the last reel, the temptress has a change of heart and contrives to double-cross the villains. An average subject, The Purple Lily was blessed with splendid location photography and craftily designed interior sets.
