Storyline

Madge, a young artist, is in love with a military officer. Suddenly he is called away to the Philippines, where he is shot. He lies upon the battlefield, half dead, but he has enough strength left to crawl to a nearby stream. There he is found by Anita, the Spanish girl, who is also very much in love with him. She notifies the ambulance corps, who carry him to the hospital tent, where Anita nurses him. Madge, who has now become a red-cross nurse, goes to the Philippines, and fate has her stationed at the very hospital at which her affianced husband is convalescing. There is hatred between the two girls, as each one claims that he belongs to her. So Madge leaves a note in the hands of Anita, with instructions to give it to him, saying that she has gone to another part of the island, and trusts that he will be happy with his new-found love.

The scene showing the attack is not convincing
17 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story with soldier life in the Philippines during the insurrection as its background. The American heroine is an army nurse and is separated from her lover, an American officer, who is wounded and out of his head, by the crafty work of a senorita, a Philippine girl, who, when her trick is discovered by the hero, attempts to betray the United States troops to her countrymen. The picture is very interesting. The scene showing the attack is, however, not convincing. Tropical scenes arc very suggestively produced. On the whole, it is a commendable picture; it is very interesting. - The Moving Picture World, October 7, 1911
