Storyline

Banker Rivington married late in life and in spite of his love and her apparent devotion Rivington is not quite certain of his wife. He showers her with presents and just before a reception he gives her a handsome necklace of pearls. Rivington does not like his brother-in-law, a reckless young fellow in whom there is no inherent harm, and when the boy appeals to his sister for a heavy loan to get him out of a financial scrape she loans him the locket to pawn. Rivington finds a part of the letter of appeal which, when read by itself, suggests other than the relationship of blood, and in a fit of anger reproaches his wife. She leaves her home with their little child and for a time supports herself as seamstress.

The cause is somewhat exaggerated
28 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

A picture showing a domestic tragedy which is based upon a misunderstanding. A young married woman helps her brother and is wrongfully accused by her husband; but long after she has left the house and is living as a seamstress the husband discovers his mistake through the return of the loan by the brother. Then he attempts to make up and get his wife back, which ultimately he does. And all doubt being removed, they live happily ever afterward. The scenes may possess some interest as representing the difficulties which sometimes arise in a family, but the cause is somewhat exaggerated. Few men are so unreasonable as this one is represented to be, though under provocation all men are more or less unreasonable. - The Moving Picture World, October 1, 1910
