This button is taken from the movie Midnight at Maxim's. The film was released in 1915 filmed on location at Maxim's - a famous New York cabaret. Having no true plot, the film was on four reels and featured a series of nightclub acts. The loose plot involved a cabaret dancer (played by Alice Rodier) and a young New Yorker (played by Rollo Lloyd) who almost fall in love until it is revealed that she already has a husband. Produced by Kalem studios, the film is done in traditional pre-1914 style.
