Storyline

John Blackstone, the successful financier, recognizes no will but his own. The committees of the various companies he controls are directors in name only, as Blackstone's voice is a dominant force. His household consists only of himself, his son, whom he treats as a child, and a host of frightened servants and a stenographer, who is mortally afraid of his testy temper and violent imperiousness. In one of his tantrums one day a serious mistake costs her her position, and although his son, touched by the elderly woman's tears, pleads for her, her dismissal is abrupt and certain. Blackstone telephones to the agency for another stenographer, and the lady in charge, knowing the difficulties that would confront the new applicant, decides that there is but one girl on her list who could cope with the situation, Portia Wood.

The work of Miss Fuller and Mr. Ogle is of their best
3 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This story is written by Mary Fuller, and she and Charles Ogle have the leads. It is a pretty story and will be heartily enjoyed. The work of Miss Fuller and Mr. Ogle is of their best. Miss Fuller portrays a stenographer who has a will of her own; she is continually at odds with a somewhat forceful employer, who has a son in love with her. When the time arrives, however, she tells the son that not only does she care nothing for him, but, in answer to an insinuating remark, for the father either. There are several comedy situations. The climax, in which the two leads hold the stage, and in which the stenographer discovers she really does love the employer, is finely carried out. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
