A young intellectual, J. Powers, loses his faith in God after the untimely death of his wife. He devotes his great talents to writing a shockingly blasphemous book, debunking all religion, and then embarks on a trip to Jerusalem. Far from reconciling him to God, the sight of all the different sects worshipping in that ancient city only serves to embitter him and deepen his unbelief. One day, wandering in the country, he loses his way and stops to ask directions at a small house. The inhabitants are a poor but devout family whose daughter, Ruth, revives his broken heart. At the risk of losing her, he confesses to her his loss of faith, and she gently declares that meditation on the Gospels will heal him. He sorrowfully tells her that he wishes he could believe as she does, but it is impossible. Exhausted by the discussion, Powers falls asleep and in a dream witnesses the entire panorama of the Old Testament, from the Garden of Eden through the prophets and the kings. In his dream, he repents; he then awakes, his faith restored. In the morning, he asks Ruth to marry him.

And when, after being released, he uses the money he earned at the prison workshop to buy a toy for the little girl of a farmer who gave him shelter and accommodation, what is his reward? Another prison sentence! And why? Because two gendarmes arrested him on his way back to the farm for vagrancy? And why? Because after giving all his money to the toy shopkeeper, he had no money left with him. The law is the law. But, as the Romans put it, it is "dura lex".

The famous French star, Mlle. Napierkowska, is featured in this story of the stage, its successes and failures. The young composer, Hurlburt, with mingled feelings awaits the day of the first rehearsal of his opera "La Tolosa." Critics and reviewers in the shoals are present to witness it and Hurlburt knows the importance of their verdict. Unfortunately for him the standard of merit demanded by them is not found in the opera and blasted in hope and ambition he leaves the theater. On his way home he encounters a poor young flower girl who has just been robbed by hoodlums. Taking pity on her he brings her to his home and gives her food and shelter. To his surprise he finds that she has a remarkable native talent for dancing and determines to make use of it in his next opera and in the meantime to be her benefactor. Some time later, filled with confidence both in his protege. Valerie, and in the merits of his new production. Hurlburt directs the dress rehearsal of "Caius Caligula." Quite the reverse of that of "La Tolosa" is the reception awarded to this opera. The beauty, grace and talent of Valerie united with the excellence of the music takes the audience by storm and author and girl receive the plaudits of the critics. The Vicomte d'Arcel, who has met Valerie before, seizes the opportunity to declare his love to the girl who admits that she does not view him with indifference. Later when Hurlburt looks for her to take her home he sees her drive off with the young nobleman. The next day he is overwhelmed to receive a letter from her telling him that because of the deep love which she feels for d'Arcel she is impelled to leave the hospitality of his house. Months later Valerie learns that d'Arcel will not marry her because of the objections of his parents, and decides to leave the cast of "Caius Caligula" and seek a change of employment. Despite her defection the play continues with brilliant success and Hurlburt is begged by the theater owner for the privilege of presenting his next opera. Heartsick at the loss of the girl whose benefactor he has been and who has done so much to insure the success of "Caius Caligula," Hurlburt feels the importance of securing her for his hew opera. He learns from a friend that she has secured an engagement with another and will make her debut shortly. Finding that the accompanist of that theater is ill he applies for and receives that position for the dress rehearsal. So on that fateful night the man and the girl he loves are thrown together again in a dramatic scene. What happens is better left to the imagination. We will say this, however, it is both satisfactory and artistic.

Gina Gioverni, a beautiful and popular opera star, has but two passions, her old blind mother and her art. Scandal has passed her by and heart-free she is happy. Her beauty and talents, however, win for her suitors and admirers whom she does not desire. One of them, an English nobleman, writes and implores her for a hearing, saying that he has left wife and children for her. She answers with a note, telling him to return to the wife to whom he has sworn fidelity. Brokenhearted with his hopeless passion, he kills himself and innocently Gina is involved in the tragedy. Rene Alexandre, a rising young artist, hearing of the suicide and the cause, idly dashes off a cartoon depicting Gina sitting on a tombstone in a cemetery, and with the caption, "Another monument to Gina's beauty." His friends, against his wishes, send the cartoon to a newspaper, which gives it a prominent position in the next issue. The cartoon brings down upon Gina's head a storm of unjust condemnation, and it breaks upon her at the next performance in which she appears. She is hissed and berated, and is carried fainting from the stage. She learns the cause of her sudden unpopularity and determines upon revenge. With her old music teacher, she seeks out Alexandre in a dance hall and is introduced to him as Mlle. Verdant, an artist's model. Struck by her beauty and not recognizing her, he hires her to pose for him. His admiration grows as he comes to know her. As the picture is finished an operatic contract is tendered her which she accepts. She sends tickets for Alexandre for himself and friends for the opening performance, and on her card writes that she regrets she has not previously complimented him for his clever cartoon. The young men go to the performance, prepared to hiss the singer off the stage. Alexandre recognizes her and dumbfounded, prevents the hostile demonstration. Gina's performance wins the frantic applause of the audience, and flushed with success and happiness, she greets later, in her dressing room, Alexandre, now repentant and a tender lover.

Nero and Britannicus

In the opening scene, Britannicus is seen wooing Junia, to whom …
In the opening scene, Britannicus is seen wooing Junia, to whom he is betrothed. He is the rightful heir to the throne of Rome. The emperor having died, Nero, assisted by his scheming mother, is proclaimed emperor instead of Britannicus, who is informed by his friends that the throne has been usurped by his treacherous stepbrother. Britannicus, alarmed by these tidings, hastens to Rome to claim the throne, and is met by Nero, who cunningly offers to let the people decide. Nero is hailed by the people as their ruler to the disgust of Britannicus, who informs his betrothed of Nero's treachery, and enlists her influence to recover the throne. He entrusts this letter for delivery to a supposedly loyal friend named Narcissus, who, instead of delivering the message to Junia, hands it over to Nero. Narcissus returns to Britannicus, and makes him believe that Junia has spumed his love message and no longer cares for him. Britannicus, terrified by this second misfortune, can hardly believe his senses, and is for the moment crushed. So as to separate the lovers forever. Narcissus now counsels Nero to have Junia abducted, and the fair woman in the dark of night is made a prisoner by Roman soldiers, and carried to the emperor's palace, where Nero is waiting. He gloats over the lovely form cringing before him in deadly fear, and a violent passion is aroused in the tyrant. Nero, enraptured by the charms of this virgin, decides to make her empress and thereby remove her forever from the influence of Britannicus, his hated rival. He writes Junia to this effect, warning her not to show any further affections to Britannicus, whose life is threatened in that case. Britannicus, after the first shock, begins to hope again, and is seen entering Junia's home to satisfy himself of the true state of affairs. To his dismay, he finds his beloved gone and her attendants unable to inform him of her whereabouts. Immediately he sees the hand of Nero, on whom he calls to demand for information about the woman that is dearer to him than his life. Nero receives Britannicus, and makes him believe that he is his true friend by introducing him into the presence of Junia, who occupies an adjoining room. Britannicus bursts out in a passionate appeal to Junia, while Nero is seen crouching in the background observing the two. Junia has noticed Nero hiding behind a curtain, and therefore dares not confess her love to Britannicus. She treats him coldly, causing her unfortunate lover to rush in despair from the room. Nero, stepping out of his hiding place, again proposes to Junia, who spurns the tyrant, and in her extremity, whips out a dagger with which she threatens to end her life. Nero becomes frightened, desists and infuriated, leaves the room. We now see Nero shaking off the influence of his mother so as to better pursue his career of crime. His mother's armchair thus far was placed next to his throne. He orders the same removed as an outward sign of his future independence. His mother just then enters and a quarrel ensues between the two. She denounces her son before the people as a usurper to the throne, and leaves the palace vowing vengeance. Outside she comes upon Britannicus, and immediately conceives the idea of using her son's hated rival as an instrument in her revenge. She informs Britannicus by letter that Junia still loves him, and offers her assistance in his fight to recover the throne. Narcissus, the spy, is present when Britannicus receives this note. He manages to obtain possession of it, and hastens to Nero to inform him of the impending danger. Meanwhile, Agrippina has introduced Britannicus into the palace, and brought the lovers together. Nero suddenly enters, and beholding the situation. His anger knows no bounds. But before the strong will of his mother, he cowers and slinks from the room. He begins to realize that more desperate means must be employed to destroy his enemy. In such a moment, Narcissus suggests to him the use of poison, and Locusta, the official poisoner, is called in and consulted. She concocts a powerful poison which is tried upon a slave who quickly dies, convincing Nero that this is the quickest way to rid himself once and for all of his enemies. Nero addresses a letter to Britannicus, giving his consent to his marriage with Junia, and fixing a day for the wedding, which is to be celebrated in his palace. We see next the wedding procession and Nero plighting the troth between the lovers. The wedding feast follows, at which the court is sitting around the tables with Nero and his mother upon a raised platform in the center. Nero rises and drinks the health of the newly wedded couple. He bestows a signal honor upon Britannicus by sending him a cup of wine to reply to the emperor's toast. Britannicus rises, and unsuspectingly drinks from the faithful cup. He has hardly touched a few drops when he falls down in great agony. A general commotion begins, during which Nero leaves his table and comes rushing to Britannicus, who is writhing on the floor dying. Agrippina, in a moment sizing up the true situation, accuses her son of the crime amidst the consternation of the wedding party. Junia, seeing Britannicus about to die, has quietly seized the poisonous cup and drinks the rest of the contents. She falls to the floor over the prostrate form of Britannicus, and the two, in a last embrace, die amidst the pandemonium around them. Unable to be together in life, they are joined in death, never to be parted again.
