Frank Mayne, a well-known artist, who had served a twenty-year sentence for a murder he did not commit, returns unexpectedly to his studio, where an amazing scene confronts him. Elaine Bernard, one of his pupils, is cowering over a table, her hair disheveled and her clothes all but torn off her back. Ford Maillard, her fiancé, stands over her, upbraiding her bitterly, while lying prone on the ground, his face covered with blood, is Delna, a Hindoo art student, who possesses occult powers. In the background is a woman whom he does not recognize. It develops later that she is his wife whom he had not seen since his imprisonment, and that the girl is his own daughter. Maillard had arrived at the studio in time to rescue her from the attack of Delna, but, misunderstanding her presence there, accused her unjustly.

Not as highly spiced as the title suggests
17 November 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Occultism plays rather an important part in "Infidelity," a five- reel screen drama produced by the Erbograph Company. A Hindoo gentleman possessed of remarkable powers of mesmerism is shown in the act of compelling a young girl, by the mere exercise of his will power, to leave her home and join him at a distant studio. The experiment is interesting, even if impossible. It also gives the hero an opportunity to save the girl from a dangerous situation. The story of "Infidelity" is not as highly spiced as the title suggests. At the opening of the picture a husband wrongfully suspects his wife of encouraging the attentions of another man, and the final scene shows the pair united. The intervening subject matter is concerned with the fortunes of the daughter of the estranged couple, the entire five reels making a neatly constructed and fairly entertaining photoplay. The production is generally adequate. A tendency to overact during the first reel mars the work of Warren Cook and Arthur Morrison, but the former actor improves greatly during the other reels. Anna Q. Nilsson and Eugene Strong prove their right to the star roles, and Miriam Nesbitt, Fred K. Jones and Elizabeth Spencer are a competent trio of players. – The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1917
