Movie Info

The now-forgotten Gladys Walton played ingenues for a while in the early '20s for Universal. She was a mediocre talent who was at her best playing shopgirls and waitresses. In this cheaply made program drama Walton has a dual role, which is clearly beyond her histrionic scope. Joy Fielding (Walton) is a charming young girl who is betrothed to Chester Castle, an architect (Malcolm McGregor). After helping out the victim of a car wreck, Joy's behavior changes and she becomes Edna, a vicious and cruel virago who torments those around her. Castle finally figures out what has happened to his sweetheart: she has fallen under the evil hypnotic influence of Dr. Copin (John Sainpolis). Not only has he created a totally separate personality for the girl, he has married her while she was under hypnosis. As Joy, she doesn't remember anything she has done while she was Edna. To save her, Castle marries Joy and then does battle with Copin. Ah Moy, Joy's Chinese maid (Etta Lee), unleashes a pair of hounds who kill the doctor. Joy is finally released from Copin's spell and settles down with Castle.
