Cast & Crew
William Collier Jr.
Having no use for women of his own rank, the Duke of Poltava falls in love with Eve, a peasant girl whom he sends to Paris to be educated preparatory to becoming his duchess. Having learned all the secrets of femininity in the shops and salons of the French capital, Eve joins the Duke at the Villa d'Or on the Riviera, where the duke, made suspicious by Eve's poise and beauty, attempts to keep other men away from her. Pierre then arrives on the beach, intent on going through the small fortune left him by his uncle. Pierre meets Eve, and it is love at first sight. He soon angers the duke, and they fight a duel, with Pierre wounding the duke. Pierre then goes to Eve and claims her for his own, but she rejects him and returns to the duke, to whom she expresses her undying love.
