Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Arlette (Alice Brady), the granddaughter of a Brittany innkeeper, falls in love with Richard Vale (Henry Clive), an aspiring artist who has come to the village. Also visiting is Prince Boissard (R. Payton Gibbs), an old roué who lusts after Arlette. The Prince is a patron of the arts, and he offers to help Vale out if Arlette will come to Paris and become his mistress. She agrees, but only if he works his magic on Vale first. He does as promised and calls on Arlette to keep her end of the bargain. But the night she is supposed to give herself to the Prince, his mistreated servant Sarthe (Edmund Pardo) decides to protect the girl and murders him. Arlette is then free to marry Vale. This picture was adapted from a play, The Red Mouse, by Henry J.W. Dam.
