Storyline

John Dickson, millionaire candidate for mayor, is in love with Dora Malcom, a society girl. He finds, however, that she is engaged to marry Frank Stevens. He hides his grief and promises to be best man at the wedding. Higby, a political boss, determines to discredit Dickson as he fears he will be elected. He hires Maggie Lee, an unscrupulous woman, to appear at Dora's wedding and claim that Dickson is her husband. The program is followed out to the letter. Maggie appears and makes the accusation, but on questioning, says that Dickson hired her to do it.

Dora postpones the wedding, but does not lose her faith in Dickson, whom she knows to be an honorable man, Stevens is angered at her defense of the man, an altercation follows and Dora breaks the engagement. Maggie Lee, although a hard, calloused woman, has a little daughter whom she worships. The child is lost one day ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It holds the interest and that, after all, is the main thing
13 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Exhibitors who were at the Kalem outing during the recent convention played roles in this picture. It is a political melodrama and the crowds at the Kalem outing as audience helped Producer R.G. Vignola make his speech scenes. The story is fair, but not above the ordinary. The situation is quite possible, and while there are some things in its development that seem hardly probable and some of it that is not wholly clear (the reason for the delay in the marriage ceremony, for instance) it holds the interest and that, after all, is the main thing. The players (including Delegate George P. Plain of the Maryland State League, who took a good look at the camera) do very well. Raymond Bloomer as the reform candidate didn't wear his hat like a businessman mayor. His political rival (Arthur Donaldson) made a good conventional melodramatic villain. Alice Hollister plays the heroine; Richard Bartlett her first fiancé, and Helen Lindroth the villain's accomplice, who later gives his plot away. - The Moving Picture World, September 20, 1913
