Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Odette was adapted from the Victorien Sardou story of the same name. Suspecting his wife Odette of being unfaithful, Count Clermont orders her out of his house. To cover up his presumed shame, Clermont informs his daughter that her mother is dead and goes so far as to erect a shrine in Odette's memory. Years later, Odette returns to reclaim her daughter, who of course fails to recognize her. Unable to return to the hearth and home of her family, Odette chooses to end it all. Contemporary reviews indicated that Francesca Bertini was brilliant in the title role.
