A sophisticated Eastern girl (June Elvidge) travels West and falls for a minister (Carlyle Blackwell) in this moralistic silent western about the regeneration of a "woman with a past." A handsome, mature star for the World Film Corp. in the early and mid-1910s, dark-haired June Elvidge specialized in playing "women with pasts." Perhaps best remembered as Betsy Ann Ross in Quincy Adams Sawyer (1922). Elvidge's screen career ended in 1924. Playing a naughty little girl in this film is Maxine Elliott Hicks, a child actress named in honor of stage luminary Maxine Elliott. Elliott Hicks is probably best remembered for giving Mary Pickford a hard time in A Poor Little Rich Girl (1917).
