Jack of Diamonds (1912)
The trifling of two girls with their lovers results in the death of one of two men. It is impossible for the inspector to justify or maintain any sympathy for any concerned, unless, perhaps, for the young fellows, who drew the Jack of Diamonds into a card game in order to secure revenge by stripping him of his money.- Written by Dramatic Mirror synopsis
