Storyline

Two officers were pals for all their lives, but they knew that as soon as jealousy got a footing, there would be some trouble, for they both loved the same lady. So they consented to cut the cards, and the one drawing the highest would get the girl they loved. Richard loses, but only for a time. While he was riding out of the country to forget about the lady and everything else, his horse tripped, giving him a hard knock on the head. At this psychological moment, the lady Richard and Henry were fighting for, happens to be riding past in her automobile. She tenderly picks the man up and takes care of him. Henry soon learned that he was not the winner of the prize after all, so he tore up the agreement he had made with Richard. It is needless to say that the young lady's name is now Mrs. Richard Gray.

Not so likely to feel for a man who will gamble away his chance of winning a girl
4 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Two officers of a cavalry regiment love the same girl. The officer who is most in love with her and most in despair proposes to the other officer that they cut a pack of cards to see who shall withdraw. Such an incident is not very likely to effect the average spectator powerfully. We may sympathize with a man who gambles away his money, but we are not so likely to feel for a man who will gamble away his chance of winning a girl. The most popular romantic heroes fight their battle in the way the vast majority of American spectators approve of. However, this incident was utilized to lead up to a very charming picture in which the girl, having found her own preference, is making love prettily to a man who in honor can't respond to it, though his heart is nearly breaking. This scene is worthwhile most certainly. The picture is well acted and acceptable. - The Moving Picture World, September 2, 1911
