Storyline

Unable to support her baby boy, Grace Devereaux, a widow, leaves him at an orphan asylum. Kitty Rose, an actress friend of Grace's succeeds in securing a small part for her in the same company. Grace leaves her address with the superintendent of the asylum and later receives a letter from him saying that a wealthy widow wishes to adopt her baby on condition that she never make herself known to either of them. Grace finally consents. Twenty years later, Earle is of age. Mrs. Castro, his foster-mother, has chosen Lucille Perrin as his wife to be. Earle tells her he would like to visit Paris first, to which she agrees. In Paris, through an old friend, Earle meets Grace, now Madame Renee, a popular actress. Both are immediately attracted to each other. Although older than Earle, Madame Renee has taken such perfect care of herself that she is still youthful and beautiful and the two are soon madly in love. Earle asks Madame Renee to marry him. At first she refuses, saying she is too old. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It is not a pleasant visualization
27 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A special feature in two parts. It would have been a shocking mistake; a loathsome and unheard of marriage. They were of course both ignorant of their relationship, but death happily intervenes and "He Never Knew." This picture was written by Bessie Boniel and directed by Ralph Ince. Although such a combination of circumstances might possibly happen in the course of human events, it is not a pleasant visualization to the audience as a whole. The acting is commendable especially on the part of Anita Stewart, ably supported by James Morrison, Rose Tapley and Julia Swayne Gordan were at their best. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
