Cast & Crew
According to the book of Koran, a divorcée must marry and be divorced again before she can remarry her first husband. Consequently, when Faimeh, a young English woman who had been sold into slavery, is forced to marry Amad, an old miserly diamond merchant, who, in a fit of pique divorces her, she would rather put up with the beggar husband who had been substituted for that purpose than to remarry the old man. In reality the beggar is Jack Stanton, a rich young man from Broadway who had come to the Holy Land to win a bet from James Fitzgerald, a fellow club member who had been forced to flee the Turks years earlier. When Stanton refuses to divorce his wife, the couple escape to the desert, pursued by Amad and his henchmen. After a series of harrowing events, the beggar and the girl escape, and Stanton learns that Faimeh is actually Fitzgerald's daughter who had been captured by the Turks as a child. Faimeh learns that Stanton is not a beggar but a wealthy American, and the two return to New York to be married in a Christian ceremony.
