~Plot Synopsis~
At Deauville, an informal conference of diplomatic powers is attended by: Julian Weymouth (Neil
Hamilton) and his brother Sir Henry (Earle Williams), of the British Diplomatic Service; Count Orloff
(Arthur Edmund Carewe), a young Russian royalist; the Marquise de Zares (Julia Swayne Gordon)
and her daughter, Dora (Blanche Sweet); and Countess Zicka (Arlette Marchal), who sells political
secrets to Baron Ballin (Gustav von Seyffertitz), reputedly an agent of the Bolshevik Government.
Count Orloff, believing that Dora has been responsible for his arrest in Russia, hastens to warn his
friends at the British Embassy, unaware that Julian and Dora, who have just been married, are
leaving for London with a treaty from the Chinese delegation. Julian's trust in Dora is shattered
when the document is stolen. Julian and Sir Henry make a desperate effort to regain the lost treaty,
addressed in Dora's handwriting to Ballin. With the aid of Robert Lowry (Matt Moore), an American,
Zicka is tricked into admitting her guilt. Julian and Dora renew their vows of love.
