Storyline

A marriage against her will, to a man she does not love, a fate abhorrent to any free-born girl. True, he is wealthy, but what is money when one's heart is unhappy? On her wedding day, in fact, the man whom she does love is beseeching her to turn, but she dare not, and is married to the financier. He is a peculiar man, a puzzle to her. She sees that he loves her, but he does not seem the least perturbed at the fact that his love is not returned. He is always smiling. Oh, if he would only talk to her of her coldness, plead with her as a lover should, open his silent heart to her, do or say something that may perchance affect her, but he does not. He is one of those men who study, cold and calculating. Has he a heart at all? The answer comes to her suddenly one day, when he appears with a traveling bag, saying that he must go out of town, business calls him.

An intensely dramatic series of views is presented
28 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture will exert a strange fascination upon many who see it. Others will see it and fail to understand. Passing over the first part, which is a repetition of the oft-told story of a girl marrying a man whom she did not love because she was forced to do it, and looking at the second part, where the couple suddenly realize what they are to each other, an intensely dramatic series of views is presented. They are simple enough, yet they contain elemental human passion, and because they do contain it will appeal to many hearts. One of the most striking features is the emphasized fact that the lion among men needs love quite as much, more, perhaps, than the weakling. Often some little woman is quite as necessary to the daily life of this lion as are other of his essentials. The woman's mistake in this was the same as women make in everyday life—they do not understand lions; and so they drift apart, and not always do stock panics come just in time to overcome the evil and tell them how to heal their differences. The scene in the stock exchange is realistic, but nothing can overshadow the dramatic qualities inherent in the last part of the picture. - The Moving Picture World, May 7, 1910
