Stage luminary Bertha Kalich starred in this 5-reel Famous Players adaptation of her great stage success Marta of the Lowlands. Kalich, of course, was cast as Marta, the long-suffering maidservant to Sebastian (Hal Clarendon), known to one and all as "The Master." Marta is rescued from subservience by Manelich (Wellington A. Playter, a handsome shepherd. Featured in the cast in the role of Muri was Bertha Kalich's daughter Lillian. The reviewer for the trade magazine Variety applauded Kalich's total-absorption approach to her role, though he may have been swayed by memories of her performance in the original stage version.
