Additional Info

A disturbing tale of events that happened in a small Canadian province years ago. We open upon the pharmacy of Jean and his wife Louise Jean, it develops, has been infatuated by a dancing girl who has moved on to the big city of Montreal. The separation makes Jean nervous and irritable, and he longs to go to her. He therefore announces that the town is too small for one of his education, and that he has decided to sell his pharmacy and move. Both his helper and his wife pack to leave him. Whereupon an old lady, just off the train, enters. We see her in flashback as the wife of Jean's father - the mother he never knew, and who was killed running away on a train. The old lady persuades Louise to fight for her husband; and so she does, stripping the hussy bare in the town square. Jean is frightened, and shocked to his senses. He returns, and life goes on as usual. Produced in Montreal and Chicago by Eddie Dowling, with Miriam Hopkins and Gratien Gelinas starred.
