Five-part, Fine Arts (Triangle) drama. Good story, well produced and acted with an all-star cast. Girl has lover, who is called away, but intends to come back and marry her. He is killed in railroad accident. Child born. A girl friend carries baby to a former nurse to rear. The betrayed girl marries an estimable man and has another child born in wedlock. Through a series of circumstances appearances are against the friend and she is accused of being mother of the child. For a time, even her own sweetheart is skeptical, especially as the real mother tries to shield herself to the detriment of the one friend she had in time of trouble. No expense was spared in working out the most trivial detail.
