Mary Pickford played a struggling actress who marries a farmer in this sometimes poignant drama directed by James Kirkwood. Rescued from a life on the wicked stage by farmer Steve Hunter (Kirkwood), Dolly Lane (Pickford) soon tires of rural life and is easily lured back East by unscrupulous impresario Joe Canby (Russell Bassett). She becomes a big star and Canby comes to collect his reward. Perilously close to suffering a fate worse than death, Dolly is once again rescued by the stalwart Steve. Pickford and Kirkwood collaborated on nine films and the handsome actor-director also directed her closest rival, the less talented Mary Miles Minter.
