It is much too true to life
3 June 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The old story of two men and one woman, or two women and one man. It has been told over and over again since the beginning of time. It will probably be told as long as time shall last. In this instance it is an old man and a young wife, with a young man who comes into the scene and makes violent love to her. It results in the death of the old man at the hands of the younger one, and then the wife, realizing what has occurred, and her part in it, deliberately walks off the cliff to her death, joining her husband in his last sleep in the chasm below. The unfortunate thing about this film is that it is much too true to life. Possibly not all such stories end in death, but they are productive of ruined lives and broken hearts, and often develop conditions which become almost intolerable as the years go on. And in a majority of instances those most interested are in nowise to blame. The eternal triangle holds them fast, and try as they will, escape is impossible. - The Moving Picture World, June 4, 1910
