Storyline

It was on the night of the Italian ball when Maria, to tease her sweetheart, Tony, indulged in a mild flirtation with Joe, his enemy. At first Tony's jealousy was aroused, but reasoning that it was no time nor place for anything but enjoyment, he smothered the feeling. However, Maria carried the flirtation too far and a tragedy was imminent. This tragedy, though, was averted through a small boy's daring, the girl fully realizing what might have been the result of her thoughtlessness. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Everything goes to situation, nothing to character
27 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There is a good story in this picture and the producer has made it exciting. As it approaches its climax, the scenes, flashed back and forth, keep the action concrete and almost breathless. But this playing for the thrill is not the best use of the motion picture camera; for in such there is almost no individual acting; everything goes to situation, nothing to character. It justifies itself at the box office; but so does the higher kind; the first has a more immediate, the second a more lasting effect. Blanche Sweet, Kate Toncray, Charles West. Harry Carey, Charles Mailes, W.J. Butler and many others have roles with plenty to do. The photography is not quite up to Biograph standard. It is an excellent offering. - The Moving Picture World, April 19, 1913
