Transcription

Plot

As described in a film magazine review,[3] Beatrice Audley breaks her engagement with Captain le Briquet and he marries her acquaintance Sonia Roubetsky. Sonia and her friend Laura Westonry previously had admitted to Beatrice that they were both women with a "past." Fearing to spoil their happiness, Sonia withholds Sonia's confession of her past from the Captain. When he learns of this, he believes Beatrice did this to wreck his life. Sonia commits suicide and the Captain devises an unpleasant revenge scheme against the woman he believes tricked him. The Captain goes about his plan of making Beatrice love him, which comes to the point where she is ready to give herself to the man she loves when he suggests an arrangement omitting the marriage ceremony. His plan then is to afterwards cast her off. However, he discovers that Beatrice had acted in a spirit of sacrifice, and the Captain and Beatrice have a wedding.

Reception

It was not very well regarded. Iris Barry's review in the Daily Mail ran as follows: "An English picture, not of first-rate quality, but with an interesting cast."[4] A review in the American Film Daily complained that "the story has been put together in a haphazard fashion with the various sequences happening along in a disjointed manner that fails to keep the interest centered in any one character or situation."[3]
