Storyline

David Brant, a serious-minded man, observes with growing concern the drift of his wife into the frivolous ways of the worldly. From the bridge party it progresses to the theater and banquet hall with the designing clubman. The husband's suspicions are aroused by overhearing a telephone conversation with the rascal in the sanctuary of his club, but he still hopes to win his wife back. When she comes from a party that he has refused one night after he has rocked his child to sleep, he awakens at an early morning hour as she enters the room. He smells liquor on her breath and is about to violently eject her from her home, while she cringes in terror, convinced that he is going to kill her. At the psychological moment the child awakens and comes to the parents, who highly resolve to live the better life. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is little freshness in it
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This story can hardly be called strong. It is that in which the little boy's mother is extravagant and frivolous, makes father work very hard to earn money enough to live on, goes out with other men, comes home with her breath pretty strong and, then in a touching ending, makes the pretty child keep the two parents from a separation. Lovely sets and photography, with good acting and a very pretty child, "Baby" Lillian Wade, do much in this instance. But even so, to those who see a good many pictures there is little freshness in it; it interests, but it never grips. M.B. Gardner, who is called the author, deserves very little credit. Lem B. Parker has made a picture full of artistic scenes. Kathlyn Williams plays in a number of pretty gowns; we heard some women remarking on this, and Harold Lockwood is in the role opposite to her. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
