Storyline

Jim Brooks, a painter, and his wife, have hoarding with them their best friend. John West. Jim and John being lifelong chums, Jim is amazed at what he imagines to be blatant perfidy in his wife and friend. He espies them whispering together on several occasions, but the apparently convincing evidence is the slipping of a note into the hand of John by the wife, while she visits their place of work, with their luncheon. This decides Jim, and he rushes home, arms himself with a gun, declaring they shall both die. You may imagine his surprise when, as he is about to assassinate the pair, they load him with presents, it being his birthday, which he had forgotten. Their little intrigues were in making the arrangement, and the note was a list of things for John to get. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It may exert a beneficial influence
2 December 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

If one wants an exhibition of the blundering misunderstanding of the average man this Biograph film will supply it. Here is a man getting jealous of his best friend because he discovers him whispering with his wife and when he sees a note slipped by the wife into the friend's hand he goes stark mad and prepares to kill them both. They reciprocate by making him numerous presents in memory of his birthday. This is all admirably acted and perhaps no better representation of unreasonable rage has been seen in some time. This film might serve as a lesson to those who are apt to be jealous of their husbands or wives. There is usually far less reason for it than the maddened individual supposes. Circulate this film and let it tell the story of unreasonable jealousy. It may exert a beneficial influence in places now unknown. - The Moving Picture World, July 31, 1909
