A story of love and jealousy
21 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel number, depicting the love affairs of a fickle Frenchman. Engaged to his cousin, he falls in love with a famous songstress. The principal love-making scene was somewhat too fervent. Many of the scenes are very attractive, including that in the Pavillon Du Bois, the fete at the club and the glimpses of French roadways. This is strictly a story of love and jealousy and as such is strongly presented. The bull-fighting scene will strike some observers as brutal; it was certainly staged realistically. - The Moving Picture World, January 31, 1914
