A costume [from a story by Dorothy Farnum] play that rises above traditional handicaps.

The picture is full of brilliant touches and has some fine pictorial backgrounds. It has one serious defect. It suffers from a clumsy finish involving an awkward anti-climax. The romantic story is finished many hundreds of feet before the actual conclusion.

Paul (Reginald Denny), a young composer, is in love with Jenny Lind (Grace Moore) and pursues her from place to place. In a lonely tavern he engages the only room with a stove and tries to make capital out of surrendering it to the diva. He turns up among the spear-bearing supers of an opera troup in another city, at length making an impression on the songstress by his persistency.

Chief of picture’s assets is Moore, an actress of indescribable charm. Denny is a revelation in his part, a happy bit of casting in a role that calls for deft handling.
