Cast & Crew
Devoted mother and wife Muriel Barnes is married to prominent businessman Judson Barnes. When Frank Craftley, a promoter of fake mining enterprises, gains social access to her home, he believes he has seen Muriel before, and realizes that his partner, miner Jack McGoff, has a photograph of her as Cora Lamont. McGoff had married Cora in Alaska while he already had a wife, and forced Cora to become a dance hall girl. Cora had escaped by shooting McGoff in self-defense. Craftley works upon Muriel's fears until she persuades her husband to go west to examine Craftley's claim. McGoff visits Muriel, who has set up a ruse. Aware that there is a policeman below, Muriel arranges the room to appear as if there had been a robbery, and then screams for help. McGoff is killed after opening fire on the policeman. The shadows of Muriel's past are dispersed.
Geraldine Farrar's Pekingese dog, Sniffles Tellegen, also appeared in the film.
According to press release items, Henri Bendel, who frequently designed costumes for Geraldine Farrar, designed and "aged" the "rag" dress she wore in this production. Sniffles Tellegen was Farrar's Pekingese dog. Some sources list the film as a six-reeler. Diva Pictures, Inc. was Farrar's production company, which made films exclusively for Goldwyn.
