The Rose of the World
Cast & Crew
In India, Rosamond English learns that her husband Capt. Harry English has been killed in battle. After a time, she marries Sir Arthur Gerardine but is unable to forget her first husband, and gradually her love for him is rekindled, especially when she contrasts him to the pompous and elderly Sir Arthur. Rosamond returns to England to aid Lieut. Belhune in writing a biography of Capt. English, but this only serves to increase her mental anguish. When Sir Arthur arrives with his Indian servant, he notices a deterioration in his wife's condition. After spending a day reading the captain's diary, in which he remarked that food and water were scarce, she comes to the dinner table terribly distracted. The sight of the plentiful supply of food and water makes her hysterical, and she is confined to her bed. In her delirium, Rosamond requests that the Indian servant pray for Capt. Harry's return, and the prayer is answered when the servant reveals himself to be the Captain in disguise. Rosamond is healed and Sir Arthur departs.
