~Beauty's Worth~
~Forrest Stanley & Marion Davies~
~Plot Synopsis~
Prudence Cole (Marion Davies), a Quaker brought up by two conservative aunts, Elizabeth (Martha
Mattox) and Cynthia Whitney (Aileen Manning), is happy in her demure unsophistication until Henry
Garrison (Hallam Cooley) and his mother (Truly Shattuck), formerly neighbors and friends of her family,
visit the Whitneys. Henry, snobbish and flirtatious, trifles with her affections and secretly despises her
manner of dress. Mrs. Garrison invites Prudence for a visit to a fashionable seaside resort, and Henry,
ashamed of her appearance, neglects her for Amy Tillson (June Elvidge). To amuse themselves, the girls
and boys appoint Prudence to persuade Cheyne Rovein (Forrest Stanley), an artist, to stage a charade at
the hotel. She succeeds in doing so, and to their amazement she is chosen for the leading role. Her
stunning appearance causes Henry to renew his interest in Prudence, but she chooses Rovein instead.
