Storyline

Discarded, like a passing fancy or a momentary toy, the woman, who, a short time before had basked in the favor of her lord and master, stands with jealous rage, hesitating between her burning love for the man and enmity for the woman who has taken her place. High strung and impetuous she cannot bring herself to the level of a cringe to beg for what she believes is rightly hers. It is plain to be seen by the expression of her face and the convulsive twitching of her body that she is aflame with hatred and defiance. These are supplemented by the passion of her soul in the destruction of the armlet, which she tears from her arms as if to obliterate every reminder of the man she once loved. These mementoes seem to be everywhere recalling her to the majestic heights of vindictive rage; then bringing her down to the depths of despair and uncontrollable sorrow.

Dark depths of despair are played with power by the leading actress
13 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this picture the Vitagraph actors have rendered an adequate idea of the deep jealousy which may sometimes possess the soul of a woman. The alternate flashes of uncontrollable anger and the equally dark depths of despair are played with power by the leading actress. She carries her audience with her, so strong is her action. Then comes the final scene, the passing of the wine, the wine of death, the flash of the dagger the clasp of the dead hand, and oblivion. When the last scene disappears from the screen the audience feels as though it had looked upon something beside a silent drama. It has seemed so lifelike and the players have succeeded so well in translating the emotions that a breath of relief follows its disappearance. - The Moving Picture World, September 23, 1911
