Storyline

Madeline Marsh, a pretty little country girl, is captivated with the suave, but dominant manners of Dan Downing, and he induces her to elope with him. Her parents are broken-hearted, but resolve to forget the erring daughter. Downing becomes tired of his toy and casts her aside. She drifts out west and accidentally meets Downing. She pleads with him to right the wrong he has done her, but he refuses to listen. Determined that the man who ruined her life shall suffer, she purchases a revolver and that night she shoots him. She is horrified at the crime she has committed and is sobbing her heart out when the deputy finds her. He listens to her sad story and takes her to Downing, who is only slightly wounded. The two determine to start life anew. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The development is not very smooth
13 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This tells a story within a story. The girl who eloped with a young man tells her experiences to a stranger, believing she has killed her former lover. The development is not very smooth, and while well enacted, the story is not of an elevating type. It turns out that the lover was only wounded and a happy ending is suggested. The photography is quite dark in places. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
