~The Wolf Woman~
1916
~Plot Synopsis~
Triangle vamp Louise Glaum proves herself to be every bit as evil as her Fox rival Theda Bara in this
melodrama. An egotistical woman with the ability to charm, Leila Aradella (Louise Glaum) gets
pleasure from preying upon weak men. Her first victim is John Morton (Howard Hickman), a brilliant
lawyer, whom she ruins both morally and financially. Her second victim, Rex Walden (Charles Ray), the
big-hearted son of society matron Mrs. Walden, becomes her complete slave. Mrs. Walden (Gertrude
Claire) sends her elder son Franklin (Wyndham Standing) to try to dissuade Leila from toying with
Rex's affections. Franklin, however, also falls under Leila's spell, and Rex is driven to suicide by her
callous behavior. Desperate, Mrs. Walden enlists Adele Harley (Margory Temple), a girl of strong moral
character, to fight Leila for Franklin's affections. Adele's determined victory causes Leila to lose her
confidence, and in a drunken state, she cuts her own face with a shard from her shattered mirror.
Permanently disfigured, Leila ends a broken and lonely woman.
