Cast & Crew
John Webb Dillon
Alma, an actress, meets artist Gaston Duval while horseback riding, and they instantly fall in love. Gaston paints a portrait of Alma in an Egyptian costume which she wears for her leading role in her current play. Meanwhile, Anatole Peach's eccentric relative wills him one million dollars, provided that he does not make love or propose to a woman before he turns twenty-one, in which case the money will go to Theobold Martin. Alma is hired by Martin to induce Peach to propose to her, which he nearly does. When Gaston learns that Alma has been flirting with Peach, he joins the army. Before leaving for the front, Gaston invites his soldier friends to a farewell party. Alma dons a khaki uniform and attends the party incognito. She boasts to Gaston of her sweetheart Alma, and a fight ensues. Escaping the commotion, she destroys the portrait. The next day she realizes her mistake and poses in place of her portrait for Gaston's friends, after which she and Gaston embrace.
The popular song "Alma, Where Do You Live?" was from the play. The lyrics were by George V. Hobart and the music was by Adolph Philipp, who in 1919 planned to direct another film based on the play. Some sources state that Philipp wrote the play. Monopol Pictures Corp. re-released the film in January 1920.
