Long before she became a top character actress, Alice Brady was the in-house ingenue for the World Film Manufacturing Company. The fact that Brady's father, theatrical producer William H. Brady, was the head man at World might have been a contributing factor to the actress' prolific output for the studio. In The Gilded Cage, Alice plays Princess Honore, who falls in love with a handsome prince who doesn't know her true identity (nor does she know his). Scripted by Frances Marion from a story by J. I. Clarke, the film was sort of a distaff version of The Prisoner of Zenda. If Gilded Cage ever becomes available again, it might be interesting to find out why Clara Whipple's character was named "Lesbia the Goose Girl"!
