Most of the films of silent screen starlet Olive Borden have apparently been lost to the ages, and Columbia's The Eternal Woman is no exception. The story begins with a shipwreck, as Argentine stowaway Anita (Borden) rescues handsome American passenger Hartley Forbes (Ralph Graves). She comes to regret this action when evidence suggests that Forbes is the man who killed her father. Preparing to murder Forbes, Anita relents at the last minute -- and a good thing, too, because Forbes is innocent, and the real killer is still lurking about in the vicinity. Manning the camera for Eternal Woman was Joseph Walker, longtime Frank Capra collaborator.
