Storyline

Lady Margaret loved her husband with youthful impetuosity and while he deeply loved her, still so engrossed was he with social and business matters that he was often guilty of seeming indifference. She believed that his love had grown cold, and in desperation confides her fears to her best friend, Lady Clarissa, inviting her to visit and advise her. Lady Clarissa arrives and at once hits upon a plan. She dresses herself in male attire, and assumes the role of a lover, sure that she will tame Margaret's husband and bring him to his sense of duty. Clarissa, as a young gallant, makes quite an impression upon the male companions of the husband and finds her position at times rather embarrassing, especially when invited to join their drinking and smoking fests.

A story which may carry with its telling a moral of considerable force. To win back a husband's attentions by resorting to the ruse of a girl friend dressed in men's attire is a novelty that might possess some degree of usefulness in other instances of the same sort.

Staging and acting are alike satisfactory, while the photographic quality is unquestioned. - The Moving Picture World, March 12, 1910
