Storyline

John Strong, an architect, and Mabel Newman, interior designer, meet in the office of a contractor, whither both have been called to confer over certain plans. The acquaintanceship which rapidly springs up between them, soon ripens into a warm affection, and when Strong proposes marriage, Mabel gladly accepts him. William Addison, the contractor in whose office the two were brought together, has almost unconsciously fallen deeply in love with Mabel. The news of her marriage to Strong reveals to him the full extent of his love, with all the pitiless distinctness of a lightning flash. After their marriage, John and Mabel spend their honeymoon in a little bungalow by the sea. John, an enthusiastic fisherman, goes out one day after tuna, is overtaken by a storm, blown far out to sea and finally wrecked on a small island many miles from shore.

The piece lacks a certain degree of action
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The excellent scenic effects in this are its strongest points, the story lacking any very definite originality of plot. It is the tale of a young husband lost in a boat at sea. On his return a year or so later, he finds his wife about to marry her former lover, but he explains everything that has happened to him and all ends happily. In the opening scenes the hero would have appeared to better advantage if he had not walked on the inside of the street with the girl and puffed so vigorously at his cigar while doing so. These are small matters, but in a comedy of this type they stand out very strongly in the eyes of critical observers. The piece lacks a certain degree of action, but was sincerely presented and by no means uninteresting. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
