Storyline

John Arthur, lawyer, has in his care the immense fortune left by Chas. Bristol for his daughter Lottie. So great was old Bristol's confidence in the young lawyer, that he made it a condition of his will that John could use his own discretion in finally turning the money over to his daughter. The income she is to receive, but the principal is to remain under the watchful eye of John Arthur until Lottie is married to a man who in John's estimation would be capable of managing the fortune. John has seen the girl on several occasions relative to business and her beauty appealed to him although thoughts of love never enter his mind. But when a foreigner Count Borni comes and courts Lottie, John becomes conscious of feelings he doesn't understand. Just as a matter of business, however, he writes to a London firm inquiring about the Count's reputation. He learns that the Count is a profligate and a bankrupt.

Counted a fine picture by the majority who are not critical
30 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

By the addition of one new character, the whole aspect of an often-used situation has been not only changed, but made intensely interesting. If it had been well acted by all those in important roles, as well by the grafting governess and by the fortune hunting nobleman as by the homely lawyer and the heiress of whose fortune he has charge. It would have been a big offering; for the situation has much more substance and is more easily believable than any of this kind that we remember. Just as it is it will be closely followed for its story and counted a fine picture by the majority who are not critical. Arthur Johnson plays the lawyer, a queer character, a kind of "man from home." Lottie Briscoe is as usual in roles of this kind. Howard Mitchell does not seem at his best as the count. Mrs. Daly plays the governess, and Charles Brandt, the lawyer's clerk. The scenes are clearly thought out and freshly interesting and the action is carried along smoothly and quite clearly.
