| De Maupassant
Herbert Prior and his wife, Rose King, have been invited to an elegant party. They buy new clothes and, show off their appearance to their neighbor, Caroline Harris, who lends Rose her expensive-looking necklace. When they return from the party, they are reminiscing, when Rose realizes the necklace is missing. What to do?

It's a heartfelt and well-acted movie based on a de Maupassant story, about honest people in an unkind world, Given the source, Griffith presents it without much adornment, albeit updated to 1910.

Miss King was a stage and vaudeville performer who was appearing for a year in the flickers. Mr. Prior, on the other hand, was a well-regarded screen actor, who moved from one company to another: Griffith, Edison, Majestic... he seems to have peaked within a few years. By 1925, he was appearing in uncredited bits. He retired from the screen in 1934 and died 20 years later, far from his native England
