Storyline

The poor little housemaid, with her tired bands incessantly toiling, despairs of ever experiencing a kindness, for although she reproves herself for complaining, having what she deems a good job, still her life is that of one driven like a beast of burden. Even the spoiled child of the household orders her about and treats her with absolute disdain. The child wears a bright ribbon sash, which, to the poor eyes of the slavey is overwhelmingly beautiful; so much so that she is tempted to steal it. She has it in her possession but a few minutes, when she reproaches herself and starts to return it. But, meanwhile, her act has been discovered and she is denounced as a thief. This is done in the presence of her sweetheart, the stable boy, who at first turns from her, but finally realizing the act was one of impulsiveness, forgives her and takes her to his heart.

This clownish maid was not played with convincing effect
30 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A character comedy, the leading part in which is a clownish serving maid in a family where there is a spoiled child. This clownish maid was not played with convincing effect. The young lady who took the part seemed unusually competent, but she was poorly cast. Her looks belied her at every minute nearly, in spite of clever facial expression, and then one can't keep up clownish work all the time, especially if one was born with the face of an artist. The poor servant girl too greatly admired the pretty sash of the spoiled child and after she had put her to bed, borrowed it to sec how it would look on herself, took it to her room. But the spoiled girl found it out and brought her mamma to search for it. The sunshine came through the love of the stable boy who consoled the girl for her harsh treatment by the spoiled child. The picture, with the exception pointed out, is very interesting and highly commendable. - The Moving Picture World, December 9, 1911
