Storyline

Hugh Mainard, a big, strong fisherman, and Ida Darrow, the pretty lame girl, become much attached to each other. Mabel, who is called "The Coquette," is rescued from a shipwreck by Hugh and Bob Darrow, Ida's brother. The newcomer is taken into the Darrow home, and Bob soon falls in love with her. But she favors Hugh and he soon forgets Ida. This arouses a certain Jealousy in Bob and also a strong resentment against Hugh's treatment of his sister. A fight ensues, and in one of the most unique scenes ever produced in a picture, the two rivals, still fighting with the desperate abandon of angered men, roll down the cliffs and over the brink, dropping through space into the raging sea below. They keep up the fight in the water until they are forced to stop from sheer exhaustion and realization of their folly.

The players' intelligent acting did much to redeem it
13 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A tragic story of the rocky Californian seashore. The scenario is rather sentimental, but the players' intelligent acting did much to redeem it. The coquette was a young girl, the only survivor of a wreck, and was rescued by Hugh, the sweetheart of a lame but pretty girl of the village. This girl with others is kind to the shipwrecked girl and provides her with a pretty new dress. When she has recovered, she plays the coquette and engages herself to Hugh and to the brother of his former sweetheart. This brings about a very dramatic quarrel between these two. The picture has a happy ending. It is not a great picture, but it is pretty in both settings and acting and is pleasing. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
