Storyline

Self-opinionated and conceited, Robert Hamilton makes a deep impression on Ida Middleton. When he knows he has produced this effect, he treats her with his usual indifference and flirts with others to test her. She becomes piqued at his treatment and marries Frank Martin for spite. On the day of their marriage when they are wedded, he takes her in his arms to kiss her and she repulses him and tells him that she does not love him. For the moment he is shocked, but accepts the situation and thereafter treats her with cold politeness. They live in this way for some months, during which time Ida grows to love him and to appreciate the difference between him and a man of Hamilton's stripe. One evening, at a reception, she meets Robert Hamilton. When she is alone for a moment in the conservatory, he enters intoxicated and forces his attentions upon her, folding her in his arms and kissing her. She struggles to free herself from his embrace and at this moment her husband enters the room. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The situation has been clearly conceived by the authoress
23 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

A story of passion in which Leah Baird has the most interesting role and is ably supported by Harry T. Morey and Courtnay Foote. The backgrounds are furnished by high social life and nearly all the scenes are ball-room pictures in which there is a good deal of graceful dancing and many pretty girls. The situation has been clearly conceived by the authoress, who is none other than the leading woman, Leah Baird. Out of pique, the heroine marries the man she doesn't love. The other is a cold-hearted egoist and his attentions to other women is the cause of her anger. The drama develops out of the struggle in her heart after marriage, when the egoist comes back into her life and it ends in her falling in love with her husband. The producer, Charles Kent, has put the scenario's intention over a hundred per cent. It is an effective picture. - The Moving Picture World, January 11, 1913
