Cast & Crew
A gypsy girl is thwarted in love when her Spanish sweetheart becomes enchanted with a dancing girl. After Lord Vavasour, an English traveler, takes the dancing girl to England as his mistress, the vengeful gypsy girl follows. Introduced to society as Lady Vavasour, the dancing girl attracts many male suitors, including Bertie Errol and his friend Lord Strathmore. After their quarrel and duel over her ends in Errol's death, Strathmore learns that Errol's sweetheart Lucille was really his wife, but they kept their marriage hidden so that Errol would inherit property. When she learns of Errol's death, Lucille goes into shock and dies. Strathmore raises their daughter, also named Lucille, and exposes "Lady" Vavasour, who goes to Paris. Years later, Lucille is courted by Count de Valdor. After she refuses his proposal, the count tells Strathmore that she loves him. Strathmore hesitates confessing his love because he killed her father. After the dancing girl returns and tells Lucille the truth, the gypsy girl kills the dancing girl and commits suicide. Strathmore confesses, Lucille forgives and they marry.
Although an ad for this film includes Elmer Clifton in the cast, no evidence has been located to substantiate this. The 1924 film Flames of Desire, produced by Fox Film Corp. and starring Wyndham Standing and Frances Beaumont, was made from the same source. Charles Clary played the role of Errol in that film.
