Actor E.H. Sothern repeats his stage role of Ernanton deLaunay in this screen adaptation. The story is set during the reign of King Henry of Navarre, played by Charles Muzitt. To get her father out of prison, Julie deVarien (Edith Storey) must trick deLaunay, an enemy to the king, into being captured. But when she meets him, she does not realize he is deLaunay and falls in love with him. Only when she asks to be led to the king's enemy does he reveal who he is. Julie, shocked by this turn of events, tries to go back to the king's court and settle matters. It is up to deLaunay to save her from her own treachery. Sothern, who was best at costume dramas (which considerably limited his range) looked a bit old to play the romantic leading man, at least on film.
