Tess Lawson breaks her engagement to Will when she finds he is dishonest and afterwards marries Charles Pine. One night, a few years after her marriage, the girl alone in the house, surprises a burglar in the midst of his operations. As she calls the police the man unmasks and she recognizes Will. He begs her for old time's sake to let him go, but before he can get away a policeman arrives, and as the girl is explaining to him that it is all a mistake and that the gentleman is a visitor, her husband enters. He overhears the statement and recognizing his wife's former fiancé, misunderstands the situation. Some latent spark of manhood arises in Will and rather than escape at the expense of the sacrifice Tess is making for him, he calls back the police officer and gives himself up as a burglar. When he shows his tools and bag of loot, even the husband is satisfied and begs forgiveness of his wife for the suspicion. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Its weakness comes from the situation itself
22 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The same situation has been used and developed to much the same conclusion in other offerings, but we notice in this a more earnest attempt to make it convincing. Its weakness comes from the situation itself. We doubt whether any author or producer could take sincere interest in it. except in its possibilities in the line of dramatic art and as a means of making a picture. In this case it is more interesting to watch the way the producer has developed his picture than it itself. It is skillfully worked up; there is good acting in it and well-made scenes, but the story remains weak. The leading role is played by William Bailey as a moral weakling who is dismissed by his sweetheart (Juanita Dalmores) because he is a thief. Later, she has married (Frauds X. Bushman), and the old lover comes as a burglar. - The Moving Picture World, October 4, 1913
