FULL SYNOPSIS

powered by AFI

Lizzie Parsons scores a success in vaudeville impersonations and attracts the attention of Oswald Kane, a theatrical promoter, who trains her and introduces her to the New York stage as Lisa Parsinova, a famous Russian actress. Later she falls in love with wealthy Brett Page and begins to despise the personas of her new self: therefore, in agreement with Kane, at the close of the season, an empty boat is found containing the garments of Lisa. Brett searches in vain for the "drowned" actress and finally meets Lizzie as her ordinary American self in a railroad restaurant, where they decide to marry.
