Katherine MacDonald essayed a dual role in the silent romantic romantic comedy Beautiful Liar. It seems that office girl MacDonald is the exact double of a famous movie star. When the celebrity is a no-show at a benefit, MacDonald takes her place. She is forced to keep up the subterfuge, lest she lose the love of her "dream man" Charles Meredith. Turns out that Meredith has seen through her charade all along, but he loves her all the same. Beautiful Liar was based on a short story by George Marion, Jr.; its director was Wallace Worsley, of Hunchback of Notre Dame fame.
