Description by OLDIES.com:

Marcia Grey is a struggling artist with a sick sister and an unpaid rent bill. The rent collector insults her, there is a struggle, and he drops his wallet. Missing it, he calls a policeman, by way of revenge, and returns to the flat where he accuses Marcia of theft. Unable to defend herself, she is tried, convicted and ultimately "does time." Released from prison she joins the Salvation Army and engages in welfare work.

In due time she meets Jon Stanford, a wealthy and philanthropic patron whom she had known slightly before, and marries him. But into her life comes the rent collector, now a German spy of imposing appearance. He takes up his abode with Marcia and her husband to obtain Government secrets from Stanford, who is in the Intelligence Department. Marcia sees no resemblance between this polished gentleman and the lowly collector. But when she finally detects him tampering with her husband's safe, he exposes his identity and apparently browbeats her into aiding his schemes. Bringing her to a rendezvous of his confederates one night the police enter and put them under arrest. it then appears that Marcia has been working with t he Secret Service all the time. So her husband, who was beginning to doubt, her is reassured, and they start all over again.

This 1918 silent film is noted for being one of the first films to star Gloria Swanson. Swanson (March 27, 1899 - April 4, 1983) was an Academy Award-nominated, Golden Globe-winning American Hollywood actress. She was prolific during the silent film era, but her career declined with the advent of "talkies". She is now best known for her performance in the film Sunset Boulevard (1950), in which--mirroring her own life--she portrayed a former silent movie star largely forgotten by audiences of the day.
