Florence La Badie


We have included this film in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of our star Florence La Badie.


"The Voice of Conscience" is a short drama produced by Thanhouser. Because almost all movie sites, including IMDB and Silent Era, have the roles of the actresses mixed up, we must set the record straight. The orphan girl is played by Jean Darnell, not by Florence La Badie. Florence La Badie plays the visiting girl.

Jean Darnell is in love with her guardian (Harry Benham), who is only interested in Florence La Badie. One day both girls are taken to the hospital after a car accident and Jean Darnell believes that she has a chance to take her rival out of the way. However, after that her guilty conscience won't let her be.
