Storyline

Helen Embert, the daughter of the lodge keeper of the beautiful estate of Mrs. Melvina Jenkins, a wealthy widow, is in love with Bert Harrison, but in a short while Bert, through a thrilling accident, meets Mrs. Jenkins and her daughter, Mary. He falls in love with Mary, completely forgetting Helen, and the friendship he shows Mrs. Jenkins she mistakes for love. Helen, meeting Bert leaving the Jenkins home after a dance, bitterly upbraids him for his treatment of her. Later Helen becomes ill over the affair and in a short while she dies. It is then that Mrs. Embert, Helen's mother, feels her heart consumed with hatred of those whom she considers responsible for her daughter's tragic death. She vows to be revenged, and, choosing Mary as the object of attack, has nearly succeeded, when Fate directs the law in her direction. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture has some moments that are impressive
2 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

The reason why this offering fails to impress one deeply, aside from the qualities that producer and players have given to it. is that the foundations for the hatred are not adequate, are, in fact, insane. The picture has some moments that are impressive, as, for instance, the death of the lodgekeeper's daughter; but this is followed by a moment that fails to bolster it with sincere emotion. One will also not be wholly satisfied with the fact that the daughter of the lodgekeeper should lose her sweetheart to the mistress of the house and that, in this same picture, the young, widowed mother and her daughter should be rivals for this same man. As for the acting, the work of the player who takes the unhappy girl's role rises far above the work of the others in the cast. The photography and the stage management are of a high order. - The Moving Picture World, October 18, 1913
