Storyline

She became interested in James Whitmore, when she saw James kissing his little sweetheart, Mary Jacobs. She made violent love to him, when she found he did not care for her. She also sought out little Mary Jacobs, told her fortune by cards, and predicted much unhappiness unless she married Bob Blake. Bob was also interested in Mary, and made love to her.

A satisfying, meaty melodrama
13 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A satisfying, meaty melodrama with the good, old contrasts, love and villainy, brought out sharply as is proper. Mr. Kerrigan and Miss Von Trump play the "mountain lovers" who feel for each other the real, old- fashioned, hug-me-tight love. Mr. Richardson and Miss Bush play the meddlers who try to break up the lovers' happiness. One is the mine owner's secretary and the other the mine owner's wife. They are most accomplished villains, skillful plotters and all that; but meet very well-deserved death from a blast. A very good picture of its kind, clear in both plot and pictures and commendably acted. A live-wire offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 17, 1912
