Clara Kimball Young stars in this mystical tour de force. She plays a woman who goes to an Oriental fortune teller in an effort to decide the path in life she should take. The seer shows her the outcome of three of the four choices she has: duty, wealth and fame. In the end she chooses love, the only road she hasn't seen. Rudolph Valentino, who was only known as a Latin dancer at the time, has a small role. It is easy to see why Young made this movie (she was also the producer) -- it was the perfect opportunity to play, basically, four different characters in one scenario. This story had a lot of appeal to other famous actresses in addition to Clara Kimball Young. Marjorie Rambeau was a sensation when she played the lead role on stage. In 1927 Gloria Swanson remade it as Love of Sunya. Not only was it Swanson's first attempt at producing, she also had Albert Parker direct it -- he was the one who directed the Clara Kimball Young version. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
Clara Kimball Young plays twin sisters, one a cabaret entertainer, the other a nun, in this melodrama produced and directed by her husband Harry Garson. Convent novitiate Janet Trevor agrees to exchange places with her worldly sister Lucy, who mistakenly believes that she has killed her longtime friend, politician John McBride (William P. Carleton). McBride had been attempting to save Lucy from her drug habit when a gun accidentally went off, but unbeknownst to Lucy he survived with only minor injuries. Impersonating Lucy, Janet wins everyone at the Cubist Café with her rendition of religious songs, but when she spurns the unwanted attentions of cabaret owner Alan Graves (Richard Graves), the latter threatens to expose McBride as the killer of one of his waiters. Janet, however, persuades the real culprit, lovesick hunchback Ramez (George Hackathorne), to come forward and when McBride discovers that the waiter, Lorenz (Jean De Limur), is not dead at all, but in hiding, Graves admits defeat. Free from accusations, Lucy and McBride plan to marry while Janet returns to her novitiate. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
