Storyline

One day, while the husband is at his office, the nurse informs the wife that their baby is blind. Not wanting to break the awful news to her husband, the wife writes for an eye specialist to come at once, telling him that her husband must not know of his coming. But before the doctor arrives, the husband comes home and finds his wife in tears. He is informed that nothing is wrong: but his suspicions are aroused when his wife receives a letter from the specialist, which she will not show to him. He goes out and upon returning, hears his wife say to someone over the telephone, "Can you come now. while my husband is away?" He goes, greatly depressed, into his study. Half an hour later he returns to where his wife and the specialist are and sees his wife's arms around the man's neck, begging for he knows not what. He is about to shoot both when his wife, with a hysterical cry, throws her arms around him because her little one can now see. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Hackneyed action marred an otherwise splendidly executed picture
2 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A good story of a foolish wife who tries to conceal from her husband the fact that their infant is blind and who in his absence secures the services of a specialist in an effort to restore the sight of the little one. The husband is aware that something is wrong, but of course gets the wrong view. He bursts in on the surgeon, the wife and the maid just after the operation has been pronounced successful. It is too bad that the husband was made to draw a pistol as he entered the room; the hackneyed action marred an otherwise splendidly executed picture. Laura Sawyer and Benjamin Wilson were the wife and husband, Jessie McAllister the maid, and Richard Allen the specialist. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
