The Woman

The Woman
   Produced by David Belasco, William C. de Mille's three-act melodrama opened on 19 September 1911 for 247 performances at the Republic Theatre. Illinois state representative Jim Blake disdains his constituency, but fears they will eventually wake up to his crooked dealings. He hopes to smear Standish, his idealistic opponent, by proving that Standish has been unfaithful to his wife. Blake tries to bribe telephone operator Wanda Kelly to reveal the identity of Standish's mistress, but Wanda discovers that the woman in question is Blake's daughter. The good-hearted Wanda manages to prevent any scandal and, in the process, falls in love with Blake's honest son, Tom. A silent motion picture version was released in 1915.
