S. Rankin Drew, son of noted stage star Sidney Drew, directed this feature and co-starred in it, along with lovely Anita Stewart. Like an uncountable number of other films throughout the teens and twenties, it was based on a Robert W. Chambers story. Drew plays an American artist in France who snubs a cabaret cashier (Stewart) until he finds out she's a longlost princess. A romance grows from this unpromising start, and the pair help an English secret service agent (Frank Morgan) in his efforts against the Germans. Meanwhile, the owner of the cabaret (Anders Randolph) is willing to go with whichever side offers the most money. No film set in Europe during this era could escape without a few battle scenes, and this picture has its share for a climax.
