Storyline

Two brothers, Henry and Paul Zanes, are country lawyers. Paul is ambitious politically, while Henry is thoroughly satisfied to remain in his modest surroundings. Through a friend, Paul meets Dorothy, a country girl, and falls in love with her. They become engaged, but Paul defers telling his brother. Meantime, Henry receives an offer of a secretaryship from a Senator, but does not care for it, and offers it to his brother Paul. The position is for an unmarried man, and Paul decides to quietly marry Dorothy, but pretend to be a single man. He takes her to another town, and after the wedding, goes to Washington. Time passes, and neither she nor Henry hear from Paul. One day, Henry is called to the bedside of a dying woman, and to his horror, finds that she is Dorothy, his brother's wife. He cares for her baby girl, named Dorothy, and after her mother's death, disowns his brother. Fifteen years elapse and Henry has brought up Dorothy in ignorance of her parents. Paul has become a senator... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Superior in all respects
5 May 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A special feature picture in two parts, picturized by George Plympton from the magazine story by Gouverneur Morris. William Humphrey has produced it and plays the leading role (The Senator). Leah Baird plays a dual role opposite. The acting of all the artists appearing in this picture is most commendable. The general construction of the plot is such that a sustaining interest manifests itself throughout the two reels. This visualization can be classed as superior in all respects. - The Moving Picture World, November 28, 1914
