Storyline

In a small hamlet upon the ocean sands, there live an old fisherman and his two daughters. Betty, the more attractive of the two, having won the heart of Bob, a youthful fisherman, whom her sister, Jane, also loves with a silent devotion. At the opening of the story Bob has several affectionate scenes with Betty, in which her lack of sincerity and depth are manifested in deep contrast with the character of Jane. Joe, an artist, lured by the picturesque seacoast, happens upon the peaceful settlement and is immediately attracted by the unusual beauty of Betty, whose services he manages to enlist to pose. Bob, who has felt a gradual indifference upon the part of Betty, later happens upon the scene in which his betrothed confesses her love, to the young artist.

The story fails to grip the observer
20 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Margarita Fischer plays the role here of a girl on the seacoast who becomes enamored of a young artist and goes to the city. She leads the gay life and falls very low in the social scale. In the end, she returns home to find her first lover married to her sister. She jumps into the sea and drowns. The photography and acting in this production are quite good, but the story fails to grip the observer, owing, no doubt, to its rather sordid character. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
