Storyline

Norman Duncan, a civil engineer in the employ of the United States government, loves Elinor Williams and they are happy in their plighted troth. Duncan is ordered to the Philippines to take charge of some important work and takes an affectionate leave of his sweetheart to whom he promises to be faithful. We see him arrive at his destination, and take in the tropical surroundings. The young engineer is red blooded and human. He finds time hanging heavily on his hands and seeks diversion. He finds it in Lola, a beautiful Filipino girl, with Juno-like form and handsome face. She gives him a passing glance and Duncan is interested. He seeks the girl, and she is not averse to the attentions of the handsome young man from the states. Petro, her lover, takes in the situation, which bodes no good for the interloper. Lola and Duncan meet and the love affair is progressing beyond his fondest expectations. Returning from his foray into the swamps one day, Duncan is stricken with the deadly fever...

A strength not always noticeable in subjects of this type
22 November 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Another rendering of the eternal triangle developing interesting situations, and closing with a dramatic scene when the young man leaves his sweetheart and clings to his semi-savage wife. The old problems which have beset human hearts since the beginning of time are retold and in the telling they develop a strength not always noticeable in subjects of this type. The question will rise in one's mind regarding the advisability of the young man leaving his sweetheart and taking a wife in the wilderness, but having done it he closed the incident in the right way by sticking to her. The real problems of life are quite like the problems in this film therefore the picture should prove interesting to every audience who sees it. - The Moving Picture World, March 11, 1911
