Storyline

The young husband's irrational jealousy makes him suspicious of every attention bestowed upon his wife. Even the minister, who performed their marriage ceremony, making a pastoral call annoys him. They attend a social gathering, and his ill-concealed perturbation at his young wife's affability with all present spoils her evening's pleasure, and finally induces her to ask to be taken home. Arriving home, a stormy scene ensues, and there might have been a separation but for the wife's subtleness in placing within his range delicate reminders of her own gentleness.

It seems destined to perform a beneficial service
24 June 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Producers do well to represent jealousy in the films in its true light, otherwise it might create a tendency to such obsession in the minds of those who are easily influenced. In this Biograph picture the unreasonable and wholly unwarranted jealousy of a young husband almost wrecks a home. His unjust suspicions of his young wife become unbearable, but after a number of bitter experiences she resolves to leave him, and is only restrained by his abject promises to do better in the future. One cannot commend this picture because of its amusing, or even entertaining features. Yet whether the producers intended it or not it seems destined to perform a beneficial service in graphically exhibiting the disagreeable effects of jealous)'. - The Moving Picture World, June 25, 1910
