Storyline

Mrs. Bunce grows suspicious of her husband's good-looking stenographer and Mrs. Brown sees visions in her mind of her husband entertaining chorus girls at wine suppers, a regular cut-up. She doesn't believe his stories of being detained at the office with his two faithful clerks. She makes up her mind to find out, and one night, when he is kept at work later than usual, she calls up his office, but it so happens that Bunce and his clerks had finished their work and had gone to dinner. She receives no answer to her phone call and is assured that her suspicions are correct. When he returns home he receives the icy stare and the stony heart from her.

It is a picture for everybody, critical or otherwise
22 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A farce comedy of a very high order; it is a picture for everybody, critical or otherwise. A large Broadway audience, Friday afternoon, seemed greatly pleased with it and laughed heartily, but not boisterously. It features Miss Flora Finch, who plays a jealous wife. She goes to the length of dressing up as a young man so that she can find out how her husband (John Bunny plays the role) amuses himself. It is absolutely indescribable; but it is very funny indeed. The Vitagraph Company is very fortunate in these two clever players: there is no comedy team anywhere in the business that can match them. In this picture they have made a sure feature. Also in the picture are Wallace Reid. Dick Rosson, Miss Ray Ford and Mrs. Costello. - The Moving Picture World, June 8, 1912
