|Plot||Carter Weston, a novelist, notices a pretty young girl on the train reading his latest book, "A Modem Psyche." He is greatly struck by her beauty and sweetness, but does not speak with her as he has to get off at the next station. The girl is Jane Harmon, the daughter of John Harmon, the book and curio collector. She is returning from college and is going to help her father in cataloging his somewhat extensive library. The next door neighbors of the Harmons are Mrs. Bradley and her daughter Nell, a college friend of June. Just after the girl's return from college, Mrs. Bradley sends out invitations for a fancy dress ball, to which she invites June. Mr. Harmon refuses permission to his daughter, but she makes up her mind to do just as she pleases and sets about designing a suitable costume. Looking over her new novel she sees a picture of Psyche and determines to go in that character. Among the other guests invited to the house is Carter Weston, who happens to be a cousin of Nell Bradley. He was on his way there when he saw June on the train and since his arrival has been looking after the preparations for the celebration. On the night of the ball, after most of the guests are assembled, Mrs. Bradley is suddenly taken very sick and the festivities have to be stopped. This happens before June's arrival at the house and when she arrives, she finds nothing but a deserted ballroom. It is there that she again meets Weston, and both at once recognize each other. Weston introduces himself and greatly admires June's costume, so plainly modeled after the illustration in his novel. June, on the other hand, is equally delighted to find that this entertaining young man is her best friend's cousin. He takes her home and leaves her at the gate, asking her permission to call upon her on the morrow. The next day, Weston calls at the house with a letter of introduction to the elder Harmon, and gains further acquaintance with June through the pretense of consulting books in the library. He does not bother much about the books after Mr. Harmon has left the room, but taking June to his arms be tells her that she is the real object of his search, that he has come to bring her the love so long sought by the real Psyche.... search for A Modern Psyche on IMDb|
