~The Scarlet Road~
~4-30: Betty Schade & William Scott~
~Plot Synopsis~
Gladys Brockwell, who often played vamps during the 1910s, does a rare virtuous turn in this drama.
Mabel Halloway (Brockwell) is loved by two men -- married editor John Rand (L.C. Shumway) and
broker Raymond LeFarge (Charles Clary). When her brother, Dick (William Scott), steals money from the
bank where he works, Mabel needs help to keep him out of jail. At first Rand gives her a check to pay
back the funds, but this leaves him penniless. So instead, Mabel accepts the sum from LeFarge, who gives
it to her under the condition that she marry him. So they wed, while Dick continues to romance his
actress girlfriend, Tiny (Betty Schade). But when Tiny hears who Mabel has married, she pays the couple
a visit and reveals that she is the abandoned wife of LeFarge. Mabel tries to leave, and when LeFarge
goes to stop her, he falls out the window and is killed. In the meantime, Rand's wife has died, so he can
now be with Mabel.
