Storyline

Madison Mintern is crossed in love. He goes to Europe. Muriel Leach, also crossed in love, and hating men, takes passage on the same boat. Trapper, a detective, also a passenger, is in search of a thief and absconder, Harry Green, who is supposed to be on the same steamer. Mintern' s description agrees with that of the absconder, and the fact that he keeps in his cabin and has most of his meals sent there, serves to confirm Trapper's suspicion that he is Green. He gets the cabin next to him and watches. One night Muriel and Mintern both seek the upper deck for solitude and are disgusted at each other. Muriel sprains her ankle and Mintern assists her.

It is a slight love story
30 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

A pleasing picture, taken on shipboard by Maurice Costello and W. Ranous. It is a slight love story and borders on the melodramatic only to keep it interesting. Its chief charm comes from the players who are restrained and natural. The man is M. Costello; the girl, Clara K. Young. James Young plays a detective who nearly makes trouble, thinking that Costello is the man he "wants," but who turns out to be a good angel in disguise. The photography is clear enough to give the story. - The Moving Picture World, April 26, 1913
