Realizing that she can never have John, Unity murders Louise so that John and Stella can be together. The shock of "America's Sweetheart"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the best showcases for Pickford's talent and considerable screen presence... and one of the most confident melodramas of its era."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"This tearjerker melodrama proved to be a big hit commercially for the popular silent star Mary Pickford."
