The White Sin
Madge Bellamy and John Bowers (who appeared together a year or so earlier in Lorna Doone) have the leads in this moving drama. Hattie Lou Harkness (Bellamy) can no longer stand living in the country with her Aunt Cynthia (Ethel Wales), so she runs away and gets a job as a maid for the wealthy Van Gore family. One of the Van Gore sons, Spencer (Hallam Cooley), takes Hattie on board his yacht and has the captain stage a mock wedding. When Hattie learns of the trick, she leaves, and later on gives birth. She hears that the yacht has wrecked and everyone on board was lost, so she returns to the Van Gore home, posing as Spencer's wife. She meets Grant Van Gore, an invalid from the war (Bowers), and they fall in love. Spencer, who had been trapped on an island, is found and returns home. It turns out that his marriage to Hattie is binding, since the captain made sure the yacht was beyond the three-mile limit when he performed the ceremony. Spencer is conveniently killed when the Van Gore home burns down, so Hattie is able to be with Grant. ~ Janiss Garza, Rovi
