Storyline

In the olden days when the common man was his feudal lord's slave, many were the outrages perpetrated upon them with no redress save that which came from the hand of Providence, and tardy though the reckoning seemed, it was, nevertheless, inevitable. This subject shows a peasant family comprising the father, mother and little boy child. They are happy in their own sphere until one day several courtiers of a hunting party stopped at the humble home for refreshments. The men are particularly struck with the beauty of the young wife, and as their Duke is in the depths of boredom they suggest carrying her off to court. However, they think it best to first consult the Duke, who in the extreme of ennui, is most agreeable to the plans. Hence, the poor wife is torn from her husband and child and taken to court to be made a lady by the Duke. Here she has all her heart could wish for, as the Duke has fallen deeply in love with her. Still the one thing she longs for is her child. The Duke ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Enough dramatic opportunity for half a dozen good pictures
27 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture of feudal times, representing a handsome young wife torn from her husband for the amusement of a duke who was in the depths of boredom. The outraged husband seeks a monastery. The woman longs for her child until she goes insane and dies. The duke, realizing the outrage he has committed, attempts to commit suicide, but the cross on the dagger suggests another course, and he enters the same monastery as the outraged husband. They meet, and are about to fly at each other, but are prevented by the sanctity of the place. Here is enough dramatic opportunity for half a dozen good pictures, almost; yet they are all crowded into one, and a mighty interesting succession of scenes it makes, too. The audience will not applaud. The picture is too serious; but they enjoy it none the less, and manifest their appreciation plainly enough. The actors have taken full advantage of the opportunity presented them and that, with the excellent photography, combine to make a satisfactory picture. - The Moving Picture World, February 12, 1910
