Storyline

Roy Norris, a young author, proposes to pretty little Mary Ford and is accepted. This is the golden dawn of their life, while the first year or more of their married life is the sweet noon-time, made all the sweeter by the arrival of their first-born. The little trio, father, mother, baby, are bound together by the ties of that most holy love, until unreasonable jealousy possesses the young couple. While at work in his studio, the young author is visited by his wife just as he is complimenting his stenographer on her valuable aid, and from this the wife sees grounds tor suspicion. On the other hand, the young husband, seeing his wife talking to a stranger, is a bit suspicious, although the stranger is simply returning a bottle of smelling-salts his wife had borrowed, Later on, the young wife thinks she has further grounds for her suspicion and so when the author returns home he finds the house deserted and a letter addressed to him from his wife. It simply reads: "I have left here ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Something that seems to be finer and sweeter than words
26 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very pleasant picture to review, because of its substantial humanity and its great beauty. In it, once again the Biograph producer, whom everybody knows is Mr. Griffith, has succeeded in picturing something that seems to be finer and sweeter than words. The best scenes of it are also a great personal triumph for Little Mary. She plays the part of a young wife and mother with Henry Walthall in the part of the husband, and with a very good-natured, healthy baby as their child. The situation comes when the wife, from her point, has cause to be jealous of her husband's stenographer, a contrasting character which subtly effects the impression. The first touch which only needs an explanation and is brushed away, gives this talented a chance to show conjugal affection which shines through her pretty face like May sunlight. Her personal beauty and charm are to her, in this scene, as a Stradivarius to a master violinist, for she too makes music with them. A little later, that goosie, the stenographer, again makes her jealous. This also only needs an explanation; but the young wife doesn't know that and doesn't wait for it. For a few hours, tragedy hovers over the family, but it is all cleared in the end. A lovely picture and a most desirable release. - The Moving Picture World, November 2, 1912
