~28-45: Mahlon Hamilton & Kitty Gordon~
~Plot Synopsis~
Kitty Gordon plays real-life Red Cross nurse Adele Bleneau in this World War 1 drama. Captured by the
Germans, Adele must agree to spy for the Central Powers in order to save her lover from a firing squad.
Since the film is based on Ms. Bleneau's novelized memoirs, it's safe bet that she survived to tell her tale.
Supporting Kitty Gordon is the popular and virile leading man Mahlon Hamilton, who remained in films
as a dress extra until his death. Adele was directed by Wallace Worsley, best known to modern
audiences for his work on Lon Chaney Sr.'s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
