Distinguished British stage veteran Wyndham Standing starred in this silent melodrama from Fox, ostensibly based on a 1866 play by Ouida. Standing played Daniel Strathmore, a wealthy industrialist fighting over a woman with old friend Ferand Vavasour (Frank Leigh). The latter is accidentally killed in the brawl and a remorseful Strathmore takes in his penniless daughter Marion (Diana Miller. She falls in love with her benefactor, forgives him for having caused the death of her father, and they marry. A good cast, which also included George K. Arthur, Jackie Saunders, Richard Thorpe, and Eugenia Gilbert, struggled valiantly against a humdrum screenplay by director Denison Clift.
