Silent film drama based on a 1909 Broadway play titled A Fool There Was by Porter Emerson Browne, which in turn was based on Rudyard Kipling's poem The Vampire.

A cunning woman, a "vamp", uses her irresistible charms to seduce and abandon a series of influential men. When one lover commits suicide on the deck of a luxury liner, she merely turns her gaze to another passenger, John Schuyler, and leads him down a path to moral degradation and public scorn. Schuyler's wife never gives up hope for her husband's redemption but has severely underestimated the hypnotic power the Vampire has upon her victims.
