Storyline

This story deals with two girls who were exact doubles, the one an unscrupulous maid, and the other, Jane, a young lady of high social standing. The maid takes a valuable necklace from her mistress and leaves for the railroad station. Jane, who has just returned from a long visit abroad, receives a note from her fiancé's mother, inviting her to pay them a visit. She arrives at the station at the same time the maid appears in her flight. The loss of the necklace is discovered and a detective engaged by the owner. In the maid's room he finds clues which establish a suspicion already formed, and he hastens to the station to arrest her. The maid and Jane meet. The former's confederate comes in and informs her of the approaching officer, and she then notices the striking resemblance between herself and Jane. In her haste to seclude herself, she picks up Jane's handbag instead of her own. The detective arrives and arrests the protesting Jane, who does not know what to make of the proceeding...

The suspense is perfectly sustained and gradually grows very intense
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very dramatic and absorbing story dealing with a dishonest maid and a young society girl who is just returning from Europe and is to meet her fiancé at the railroad station. These two young women look exactly alike, or, at least, the skillful conduct of the picture is such that the spectators can't see anything unnatural in even the girl's fiancé taking the thief for his sweetheart. They both were in the station and the detectives got the wrong one. This climax is convincingly approached. The suspense is perfectly sustained and gradually grows very intense. The scenes, taking them separately, are realistic and very delightful. Beautiful stage sets, beautiful gowns and furniture and graceful, pretty players, in the feminine half of the picture, are among its distinguishing features. And it is a rattling good story, fresh and pleasing. - The Moving Picture World, January 13, 1912
