Cast & Crew
On the eve of his wedding, sculptor John Drene vows eternal loyalty to his friend, artist Jack Graylock. When John neglects his wife for his work, however, Jack accompanies Mrs. Drene to Nice as her lover. While there, Jack renews his acquaintance with a pretty flower girl named Cecelie, who assumes that he and Mrs. Drene are married. During the carnival, Mrs. Drene's dress catches fire, and following her death, Jack returns to Paris. Having agreed to pose for him, Cecelie meets Jack in the Latin Quarter, but she and John soon meet and fall in love. When Cecelie unintentionally reveals that Jack and Mrs. Drene were lovers, John convinces his faithless friend to commit suicide, but in firing the pistol, Jack merely wounds himself. John's anger diminished, he finally finds peace with Cecelie.

Sources conflict on the name of Alice Joyce's character, and one reviewer credits the role of Cecelie's sister to Florence McCafferty. Vitagraph remade Chambers' novel in 1924 as Between Friends, with Lou-Telegen and Anna Q. Nilsson starring and J. Stuart Blackton directing. (See AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1921-30; F2.0365.)
