Storyline

Mrs. Carson borrows a novel from a girlfriend, Miss Ware, who loans the book, has just received a note from her sweetheart, Jack Raymond, making an appointment with her friend to attend the matinee that afternoon, and she has slipped the note into the book. Just as Mrs. Carson begins to read, her friend, Mrs. Gadd, arrives with matinee tickets. Mrs. Carson accepts and in her hurry the note drops out of the book unnoticed. In the meantime Carson comes home and finding the note on the floor, rushes out swearing vengeance. Just as he is about to board a car, he notices his wife in an auto with Jack who chanced to meet Mrs. Carson leaving the theater. He at once goes to his lawyer, who happens to be Mr. Ware, the father of Jack's sweetheart. Hastening home Mr. Ware denounces Jack as his prospective son-in-law. Explanations follow and everything is cleared up, but for Mr. Carson, who is subjected to all sorts of admonitions from his wife. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The photographs are good and the acting fairly pleasing
13 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Old Nick, the troublemaker, gets four interesting young people into trouble. A convincingly misplaced letter and the natural courtesy that a man pays to his fiancée's best friend, who is a married woman, are the means the fiend uses. When the married man finds the letter to the fiancée on his wife's table and goes to this fiancée's father, who is a lawyer, to get a divorce, the trouble is at high tide. Of course, immediately afterward, everything is explained and cleared up, but, in the meantime, we see the natural pain and trouble dramatically pictured. The story is helped by the Nestor subtitles, which might have been much better. The photographs are good and the acting fairly pleasing. It is a good substantial offering and will fill out a bill very well. - The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1912
