Storyline

Eddie, a man of the sea, and Mary are about to be married. Eddie is with some friends when he gets an order from his boss to get some kegs from a nearby port. It is not to take him an hour. Eddie is provoked, but he takes his boat and starts out for the kegs, after explaining things to Mary. At the port Eddie meets some friends, who insist upon his celebrating. He leaves drunk. He dozes in the boat while it drifts along. He dreams of the waiting Mary and the guests and sees them depart. Mary goes sorrowfully to the shore to look for him. He sees the father looking for his girl and the mother grief stricken. He sees the girl gradually being overtaken by the tide and finally sees her submerged in the water. Then the boat upsets and Eddie wakes and hurries for home. He gets there just in time and is scolded for his wet clothing, but the dream has given him a lesson which will remain with him.

Has a strong kick in it
28 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This story, by Lois Weber, with Eddie Lyons in the title role, has a strong kick in it and ought to be well received. It tells of a young fisherman who drinks too much on his wedding day, falls asleep in his boat and almost brings about a tragedy. A good production. - The Moving Picture World, February 7, 1914
