This Gordon says he will do, but nevertheless, takes every opportunity to poison Eleanor's mind against her husband.

Clara Kimball Young gives a compelling representation
8 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A very strong two-reel offering, written by John Kemble and directed by Captain Harry Lambart. Clara Kimball Young gives a compelling representation of the neglected wife, who remains true to her husband in spite of the insidious advances of Gordon, a fellow officer. The South African scenes were splendidly produced, particularly the military ball, the barracks and the plague camp. Harry Northrup plays the husband and Herbert L. Barry the false friend. A memorable production, well acted and finely photographed. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
