Storyline

Mr. Shaw is on his deathbed. By his side kneels Mary, his daughter, and near the bed is Mr. Stafford, his best friend, and Stafford's son. Just before he dies, Shaw shows to the group assembled about his bed his will, leaving everything he possesses to his daughter unless she should die before reaching the age of 21, under which circumstances his wealth shall go to Stafford, the executor of his will and Mary Shaw's guardian. Shortly after Shaw's death Stafford is ruined on the stock market, and the only chance he can see of recouping his fortune is through the marriage of his son with Mary. To this Mary objects strenuously, as she has a little love affair of her own, but the love of gold has so eaten into the heart of Stafford that he stops at nothing, and by a ruse separates the lovers and persuades Mary that he is going to take her away to a quiet country place where she can forget her unhappy love affair.

One would think that such plays would fail to convince everybody
1 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The story of this film is very trite. Such incidents as the letter forged to deceive a lover who is in the way of a schemer are in the same category with intercepted love letters and such counter-worn properties. There's a scene in this picture where three men are plotting to kill the heroine and the sharp knife is held up; these men are the girl's guardian, his son, and the head of an insane asylum. Just because these actors were intelligent, they have made this scene a smile producer. It is remarkable that so intelligent a company as the foreign Pathe could put out such work as this. One would think that such plays would fail to convince everybody, but such is not the fact. This kind of play excites a good many people. - The Moving Picture World, June 10, 1911
