William Humphrey makes a dignified husband
6 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

A study of idle society women, the husband of one and their men friends. It shows the small jealousy and petty spiteful intrigue of idle folks and makes a good offering, for it was carefully thought out and develops strongly, except at the climax, where the ostentatious kiss misses the impression desired, an arm over the shoulder of the girl would have been more convincing. Eliza G. Harrel, the writer, deserves much credit and the producer, William Humphrey, has made most of it very effective indeed. Leah Baird plays the idle woman with often stunning effect. Dorothy Kelly is pleasing as her sister. William Humphrey makes a dignified husband. Louise Beaudet is the gushing friend and trouble-maker. Earle Williams is the artist and S. Rankin Drew, the baron. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
