Marion Davies plays a French girl whose fiancee is at the front in World War I. When American troops are billeted in her village after the armistice, she is romanced by and falls for a soldier, and must make a decision who to go with when her fiancee returns blinded.
Made when some in Hollywood hoped that sound pictures would be a passing fad, the same story was also filmed as the talkie 'Marianne (1929/I)' using the same sets but mostly different actors.
Pleasant, but nothing to go out of the way for except perhaps to compare it to the sound version (which I haven't seen).
