Storyline

Mrs. Neville is the neglected wife of a rich old man. Things come to a climax at a reception given by them, and she yields to the pleadings of an impassioned admirer and decides to elope with him. Twelve o'clock is the appointed hour. In packing up her clothes she finds a bundle of old love letters, and looking them over revives tender memories of her courtship. Weeping bitterly, the appointed hour is forgotten. Her husband gets wind of the contemplated elopement, and armed with a pistol he cautiously enters her room. The pathetic figure of his sobbing wife brings to him a realization of his neglect, and when she confesses and pleads for forgiveness he takes her tenderly in his arms and tells her that it is he who should ask her pardon, and with a full understanding and renewed love, the two look brightly forward to the future.

Miss Fernley shows remarkable strength in an emotional role
31 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very effective picture in which Miss Fernley shows remarkable strength in an emotional role. A reviewer of motion pictures has his feelings dragged this way and then that so often that he simply has to become hardened to a large extent. It takes a fairly effective picture to make such a one choke, but this does it. It is a tragedy with a happy ending. The tragic situation is pictured against the festivities of a masquerade ball. The man and his young wife who are giving the ball and a guest alone suspect its presence. The elderly man misunderstands his wife and the interloper is tempting her to flee with him. She has consented and the appointed hour is to be while the ball is at its height. Just before she slips out, the woman picks up a little package of her husband's love letters. She reads one and then she breaks down. Her husband, who, inconsiderate as he seems, still loves her, comes in and finds her weeping. They make up and go happily back to the ballroom. The picture's strength comes from the sharp contrasts and from Miss Fernley's excellent acting, although she is very ably supported. Mr. Walthall plays the interloper. Almost a feature. - The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1912
