Description

In the first picture Miss Faust is seen bemoaning the fact that she is no longer young and beautiful, when all at once a happy thought comes to her and she decides to call up the infernal regions and inform old Satan that she will sell him her soul if he will only gratify her wish to possess youth and beauty again. The jolly old creature takes her seriously and pays a visit to her home where the bargain is completed. We next see her transformed into a beautiful young girl gazing on a vision of her future lover, a dashing fellow riding a bicycle. This is only a vision, however, which Satan has called up, but which had so fascinated Miss Faust that she starts out immediately to find the reality. Her love affair is an extremely eventful one garnished with auto rides with a good guardian angel as chauffeur. Her trials as well as joys are many, but her greatest annoyer is old Satan, who is continually reminding her of the bargain she made with him. Good eventually overcomes evil, however, and we see Miss Faust entering paradise with her lover, where the angels give her a hearty welcome and all bids fair for her eternal happiness, while old Satan, angry and disgusted, returns to his home in the warmer regions.
