  • "A New York socialite loses charity funds in her keeping on stock exchange speculation. In desperation she borrows from a wealthy Oriental who then seeks to assert property rights over her. This 'sex and sadism' melodrama, daring for its day, was handled with sufficient taste to win widespread approval. Today it is the blatant appeal to race prejudice that is more apparent. The Cheat is also notable for the care which De Mille took with lighting effects, putting white faces against black backgrounds."@en
