Storyline

Two young men love the same young girl. One of them, learning that war has been declared, enlists and goes to the front. Passing with his regiment before the home of his beloved, he leaves the ranks to say farewell. He asks her hand in marriage and she acquiesces. He then slips the betrothal ring on her finger and she, in turn, unclasps a locket she wears around her neck and gives it to him. He swears he will never part with it, and they exchange a last kiss. As he goes away, she bursts into tears. The other young man is called on the field of operations as war correspondent of an important newspaper. He calls on the young girl and also tells of his love for her. He meets with a repulse, he insists, she shows him her engagement ring. She is no more free, her word has been given to another. Furious, the war correspondent leaves, but vows inwardly that he will have his revenge, cost what it may, on the man who is the cause of his disappointment and whom he now hates with all his might. ...

Stirs the blood in a healthy way
10 January 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A war drama which develops some phases of modern warfare in the suggestion of wireless telegraphy. The love story woven into it is based upon the usual jealousy of one man because she accepts another, and there is a complication of charges of traitor and the death of the false accuser by a shot from a sharpshooter's rifle. A battle occurs, the lover is wounded. His fiancée, now a nurse, finds him unconscious and succeeds in restoring him to health again. The inevitable wedding follows. If any more exciting and not unpleasant action could be crowded into one picture the producer deserves a special certificate for good work, faithfully performed. This film will be popular. It contains just the kind of action and is based upon just the kind of plot a majority of motion picture audiences delight in, and they testify to their appreciation by close attention throughout and applause at the end. A good war drama of this sort stirs the blood in a healthy way and serves to arouse an audience that may have become partially indifferent because of the monotony of previous pictures. - The Moving Picture World, October 23, 1909
