Storyline

When Edward Pendleton drove through the little village of Rosedale, in the late nineties, he passed a girl of extraordinary beauty, with whom he promptly fell in love. Instead of passing through Rosedale, as he had at first intended, he stopped at the little inn there, formed an acquaintance with the girl, Margaret Brown, won her love, married her and took her away to the city. John Forbes, a very young farmer, had worshiped Margaret with all the intensity of a boy's devotion. When Pendleton took her away, Forbes received the greatest hurt of his life. Bitterly angry, he swore to be revenged on the man who had taken away the only girl he could ever possibly care for, and devoted the remainder of his life to the accomplishment of his vindictive purpose. Sixteen years later, John Forbes had risen from a mere farmhand to the position of one of the most powerful financiers in the great city.

Well acted and well staged
6 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

There are good situations in these two reels. The story is interesting throughout, but is markedly so in the latter part. Mary Fuller plays a double role, first as the country girl who passes over her childhood sweetheart and marries the man from the city; secondly, as the daughter of the marriage whose mother is dead. Augustus Phillips is the unsuccessful suitor who becomes powerful and on the death of the woman who had disappointed him hammers the fortune of his rival and ruins him. Frank McGlynn has the role of the banker who meets disaster and whose fortune is later restored to him by the man who caused its loss and who in return takes from him, with his consent, the daughter of the woman he had failed to win. Walter Edwin directs a picture that is well acted and well staged. Frank Blighton is the author. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
