Storyline

There is an old saying which tells us that we cannot know people fully well until we have lived under the same roof with them. If the wife in this story had known it, she might never have entertained the friend who came to visit her, for it is this same friend, the chum of her girlhood days, who opens the first chapter of an intrigue which wrecks the happy home. But there is a Providence which presides over such matters and which in this case, sends a representative to earth, so to speak. This envoy is a little daughter of the couple through whom fate pulls her strings in such a way that before the picture is finished, her little arms are drawing her separated parents together into loving embrace.

We have an undramatic surprise
5 September 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There are some very pretty backgrounds in this picture which are well photographed. The story is fairly reasonable and is well acted. It tells how a woman's schoolgirl chum, when in later years she was invited to make a visit, made trouble between husband and wife, who had one child, a pretty little girl. She did this by working on the jealousy of both until the wife and mother ran away from the home. The child became very sick and the news of this brings the mother back in disguise as a trained nurse. The nurse came in a wig. The spectator doesn't know it is the mother and when the child knocks off the wig, we have an undramatic surprise. It is not a feature, but will serve well as a filler. - The Moving Picture World, February 17, 1912
