Storyline

The Talbots were very poor. With many another proud old family they had been stripped of their possessions and ruined by the Civil War. So when June Talbot learned of an approaching dance at a nearby plantation, her delight was mingled with a very real regret. She could not possibly afford a new dress, and there was nothing she could wear. By chance, she discovered her grandmother's wedding dress in an old trunk. It was terribly old-fashioned, of course, but it was infinitely better than any of June's poor clothes. So she wore it to the dance. They were not very kind to June at the dance.

It is at least possible that Miss Bessie Learn, in building this photoplay story, had in mind the fact that the average "grandmother's wedding dress," although worn fifty or sixty years ago did not differ from the gowns of today. This fact has given it an added interest. The dramatic plot is well worked out. - The Moving Picture World, May 16, 1914
