~The Sin of Martha Queed~
1921
~Plot Synopsis~
Director Allan Dwan does the best he can with middling material in this routine drama. When Arnold
Barry (Niles Welch) travels to the mountains, he falls in love with Martha Queed (Mary Thurman).
Because she wants to see the inside of his hunting cabin, Martha fakes a sprained ankle. She and Barry
are seen by David Boyd, a drunk and a distant relative of Martha's (Frank Campeau). Boyd tells the girl's
extremely strict, old-fashioned father (Joseph J. Dowling), and he is horrified. He orders Martha to marry
Boyd to save her reputation. The next morning, Boyd is found dead and Barry is arrested on
circumstantial evidence. Martha disappears into a marsh and is rescued by Atlas, a crippled young man
(George Hackathorne). He nurses her, and when he discovers that Barry has been sentenced to death, he
confesses that he is Boyd's killer and commits suicide. As soon as he is released, Barry finds Martha and
takes her to the hospital. When she recovers, they marry. Martha's mother (Eugenie Besserer), who has
left her cruel husband, serves as the witness.
