The Point of View
Cast & Crew
When the formerly wealthy Thorncroft family falls upon hard times, their only remaining asset is their prestigious name. Marjory, the daughter of the family, takes up the burden of managing the affairs of her impractical poet father and those of Lawrence, her struggling musician brother. To earn money, Marjory rents an apartment on their estate to millionaire Westerner David Lawrence who falls in love with her. Rejected by her suitor, Dallas Henley, Marjory accepts a marriage proposal from the man she considers a crude Westerner. After the marriage, David overhears Lawrence bemoaning his sister's sacrifice and decides to return West, but Marjory, faced with her husband's departure, realizes her love for him, and they face a happy future together.
Although the Variety and Moving Picture World reviews seem to indicate that the title of Edith Ellis' original play was also The Point of View, no information on a play of that name by Ellis has been located. The Wid's review simply names Ellis as the "author" of the story. As Ellis was both a scenarist and a playwright, it is possible that the film was based on an original story by her.
