Storyline

The story opens with a pretty love scene between the Lieutenant and his betrothed, Kate Stanley. Hammond is ordered to join his regiment in Cuba and Kate is heartbroken. He tells her they must part, and the girl decides to be brave. She exacts from him a promise that he will be true to her, and not indulge in any flirtations with the dark-eyed senoritas she has been told lure men from their vows of constancy in the land of flowers. Hammond is only too willing to swear eternal constancy. Kate places in his watch case a photograph of herself, kisses her manly soldier, and the leave-taking is very affectionate. The scene reverts to Cuba, Lieutenant Hammond arrives, and is impressed with the country. Kate, having relatives in Havana, receives an invitation to pay them a visit and eagerly accepts, thinking she will meet her lover. She is apprised of his arrival at Havana, and, knowing the predilection of soldiers to flirt, resolves to investigate. Attired in mantilla and Spanish costume, ...

It depicts Cuban manners and customs with close attention to the real truth
22 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The second of the company's Cuban releases, and, not to make invidious comparisons, is probably considerably better than the first. There is the dash and spirit of the soldier, combined with the lively flirtation which is popularly supposed to be a part of the life of the Spanish or Cuban girl. The young soldier is later nonplussed with the indisputable evidence of his perfidy in the hands of his fiancée. But after the storm subsides a bit they make up and are unmindful of the rocks upon which their bark was almost wrecked. The picture is interesting in that it depicts Cuban manners and customs with close attention to the real truth, and there is a spirit shown by the actors which helps wonderfully in the development of the picture. Sometimes the pictures seem to almost talk in their strength and the excellence of the acting. The photography, too, leaves little to be desired. The company deserves congratulations upon producing such a good film. - The Moving Picture World, March 11, 1911
