Storyline

Mrs. Wallace is possessed of a disturbing premonition that her husband's love is waning, and truth to say her fears are well grounded, for although she doesn't know of anything conclusively, still there is a reason, and that reason is Vera Blair, a show girl, who, believing Frederick Wallace to be a single man, is attracted by him and successfully fascinates him. He has spent several evenings in her company and now finds her irresistible. Hence, when he receives a note asking him to accompany her to a little after-the-show supper, he hastens to comply. This note falls into the hands of the wife, who is beside herself with grief, when Bob Martin, a friend of the family, appears. Upon learning the cause of her woe, he suggests a plan to cure Fred of his folly. This remedy is to pay him back in his own coin, to wit: visit the café in his company and pretend a reckless abandon, thereby putting the "shoe on the other foot."

Wilfred Lucas leaves his wife, Stephanie Longfellow, every night to rendezvous with actress Vivian Prescott. When Stephanie discovers a note from the scarlet woman, family friend Edwin August tells her the best way to get him back is to make him jealous.

It had been only thirty months since D.W. Griffith had debuted as a movie director, and in that time he had turned almost every aspect of movie-making upside down. In this average work from him, we can see almost every aspect of how he had improved and regularized the form into a model that in a few more years, everyone would be using.

There is the editing, as shown in the restaurant scene: after an initial setting shot, each table is shown in a tight two-shot that focuses on the reactions of the characters to what is going on at the next table; at the theater exit, we see a dozen people in a crowd scene, each doing things that make sense and add to the composition; the costumes are realistic; the sets are realistic; the long explanatory titles are gone and the acting is expressive and not stagily huge.

It's not a great movie, which only goes to show how much Griffith had forced the growth of film in that short time.
