The two brightest stars in the Biograph constellation play these two wives
3 June 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The early scenes of this picture are remarkable for strongly portrayed emotion. They show the jealousy of a wife whose husband is growing cold toward her. This husband is a burglar, and he and another character attempt to get possession of a large sum of money that they know the village physician has. By a fake call, they bring him to the house and bind him, leaving him gagged in the bed. When they break into the house, the fear of the doctor's wife also is extremely well pictured. The situation is melodramatic. The burglar's wife comes in, thinks the doctor is her husband asleep, and is on the point of stabbing him when she discovers who it is. For vengeance, she helps him; together they get the police and go to the house just in time to make a rescue. The end shows the bitter revulsion of the burglar's wife when she awakes to the fact that she has brought about his arrest. The two brightest stars in the Biograph constellation play these two wives, and they help greatly in making a picture well worth seeing. - The Moving Picture World, December 16, 1911
