Storyline

The story is laid in France and deals with high society. The principal character, the Iron Master, is a strong, true character of sterling worth who is deeply in love with Claire De Beaulieu, the daughter of a noble family living near to his estate, while she in turn is fondly devoted to Gaston, the Duke De Bligny, and also engaged to him. He, however, is a gentleman of wild habits and eventually loses all his fortune at the gambling table. This fact soon becomes known to Moulinet, a "financier," who has more money than manners and whose one desire is to marry his daughter into swell society. Being in a position to know of Claire's financial state, he acquaints the Duke of her entire loss of fortune, and then offers to pay off all his debts if he will marry his daughter.

All the original beauty of the play has been retained
22 November 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The famous French society drama, "The Ironmaster," transferred to the screen with no loss of its original strength. The Edison players have interpreted the various scenes quite as effectively as they have ever been interpreted upon the stage. All the original beauty of the play has been retained, while the silent drama affords opportunity for certain delicate touches in working out details impossible when upon the stage. The character of the young woman is admirably developed and the Ironmaster is a man of whom almost anyone might be proud. The staging and costuming have been supervised with care and are accurate even to the details and the work of the actors is performed with discretion. Altogether it forms an excellent picture which will be thoroughly enjoyed by almost any audience before whom it is presented. - The Moving Picture World, March 11, 1911
