As indicated by the title of this Italian multi-reeler, The Palace of Flame ended with an outsized conflagration. But while the climax was quite exciting, the events leading up to it were rather dull. The story is motivated by the intense rivalry between competing factory owners Vivaldi and Marny. Marny hires an outside agitator to set fire to Vivaldi's plant, but manages to make it seem as if Vivaldi "torched" his own business. Sentenced to prison, Vivaldi manages to escape, then goes the "Monte Cristo" route to wreak vengeance on his old enemy. The result is a second factory fire -- and a near-tragedy for Vivaldi's daughter and Marny's son, who in the intervening years have fallen in love.
