Synopsis

Based on Dion Boucicauls's Irish play, this early talkie from lower-echelon company Tiffany starred one of the victims of sound, Sally O'Neil, formerly of MGM. A young Irish lassie, Kathleen arrives in New York to marry Terry (Charles Delaney), a poor but honest plumber. At a party given by her Aunt Nora Shannon (Aggie Herring), Kathleen dallies with unscrupulous political boss Dan Moriarity (Robert Elliott), whom she mistakes for a gentleman. When a jealous Terry denounces the girl, Moriarity asks her to marry him. At their wedding, a rabble-rouser accuses Moriarity's henchmen of having committed murder and is shot by the groom right in front of a terrified Kathleen. Having finally realized her intended's true character, Kathleen quickly returns to a forgiving Terry. Boucicault's sentimental melodrama had been filmed three times before, in 1906 by Edwin S. Porter, in 1913 starring Mary Fuller, and in a sumptuous 1919 version featuring a miscast Theda Bara. A fifth screen version of the play was produced in Ireland in 1937, again starring Sally O'Neil. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
