Cast & Crew
William P. Carleton
When his bride, Margaret, questions him about his former loves, Julian Rolfe recalls his old flame Clara Foster, now living in Paris. At the same time, Clara meets Julian's ward, Phil Long, a millionaire soldier who tells her of Julian's marriage to Margaret, and they both sail for New York. Long calls on the Rolfes and tells Julian of his infatuation for Clara; Julian advises him to forget her and later tells Margaret about his past affair. Meanwhile, Phil informs Clara of the interview, and she threatens to show Margaret letters from Julian. Though he is unmoved by the threat, his wife advises him to inform Phil, whom he later meets in an angry confrontation; upon returning home, Julian discovers that his wife has burned the letters. Later, Phil is found murdered with evidence pointing to Julian, and he is tried and convicted on the day Margaret's child is born. Margaret disguises herself and playing on Clara's superstition elicits a confession of guilt from her just in time to avert Julian's execution.
