Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Eleventh Commandment is apparently "Thou Shalt Not Get Caught." Marian Barchester (Lillian Hall Davis) is in danger of being blackmailed for past dalliance. Her actress-sister Ruth (Fay Compton) comes to Marian's rescue. In Lady Windemere's Fan fashion, Ruth pretends she had the affair, thus foiling extortionist James Mountford (Charles Quartermaine) and reuniting Marian and John Lynton (Stewart Rome). Based on a play by Brandon Fleming, Eleventh Commandment was one of a handful of silent films in which famed London stage star and acting coach Fay Compton appeared.
