Storyline

Lucile has married Ed Wilson, but still continues to receive visits from Tom Hughes, a former suitor and friend of her husband, who works in the same office with him. Tom generally announces his arrival by a yodeling call outside the house, and is always given an enthusiastic welcome by both husband and wife. Estrangement results between Ed and Lucile when she sees Tom getting along in the office better than her husband. Ed becomes discouraged and takes to drink, and is finally discharged from the office. Tom suggests to him that the right thing to do would be for him to drop out of Lucile's life and give her a chance for happiness with another man. Late one night, Ed leaves the house and starts for the west. Chance, in the form of a railroad accident, favors him, and he is able to lose his identity by changing clothes and papers with an unrecognizable victim. Tom identifies the papers and the dead man is buried as Ed Wilson. Two years later Lucile marries Tom. Ed, meanwhile, has ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Mr. Lincoln gives a performance that puts him in the first division of screen players
9 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This two-part production is an unusually strong picture. Two of the Vitapraph players here give us portrayals their friends will be justified in claiming as their best. Miss Storey in her interpretation of the wife shows a new angle in her versatility. Her work is powerful. Mr. Lincoln as the husband who leaves his wife to the man he believes she prefers and later returns to wreak his vengeance gives a performance that puts him in the first division of screen players. The story has a grip all the way. Gladden James well plays the unpopular role of the third corner of the triangle. Lovers of the spectacular will find a thrill in the railroad collision and the scenes that follow that of the wreck. There is welcome relief from the tenseness that runs through the play when the lumberman ventriloquist deceives a bystander. It is a good comedy. Ralph Ince writes the script and directs the picture. Also he has the part of the friend from home who is met by the lumberman in the Canadian woods. The latter part of the picture is unusually strong in conception and splendidly executed. It furnishes a suspense that will satisfy the most exacting picture patron. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
