At the very opening of this picture we are shown the rehearsal of a new Civil War drama. Here is shown the alert stage manager, the leading lady, the heavy man and the hero. One soon realizes where the little lady's affection lies, and that the green-eyed monster is fast taking hold of the rejected one. His jealousy reaches its climax upon the opening night of the play, when, spurred on to hatred and revenge, the rejected lover visits the leading lady's dressing room and sees there the revolver that she uses in the play to shoot the "heavy man," who, in reality, is none other than the man she truly loves. He removes the blank cartridges from the revolver and substitutes real bullets instead, hastens to his own room as the curtain rises. But the warp and woof of Fate never wove a more subtle design than when the intended victim, during the action of the play, sprains his ankle, and bring unable to continue his part, the stage manager assigns it to the culprit.

Holds the interest from beginning to end
21 November 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A play within a play that will excite the interest of the audience to the highest pitch. There is no question about this. As the love story slowly unfolds, the villain lays his trap for his rival and then falls into it himself, to use homely parlance, the interest of the audience becomes intense. Happily, however, the tragic result does not follow. But the dramatic strength of the picture is maintained throughout. Then there are peeps into that romantic world of the stage with which very few are acquainted, with some scenes representing the first rehearsal in progress with all the staff busy. It is all attractive and holds the interest from beginning to end. - The Moving Picture World, March 4, 1911
