A typical melodrama of New York City life
7 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

An offering in three parts that might justly be termed a typical melodrama of New York City life. The photography is beautiful and we see well-chosen backgrounds taken on Morningside Heights, along Riverside Drive and elsewhere. The interiors are simple but effective; and some of the lighting effects are as lovely as can be. The story is sensational; it contrasts two women as wives, the one wholly selfish and without scruples, the other self-sacrificing, and its turning point is a stock market deal. There are views of the exchange and of society-life uptown. The man with the good wife wins; he didn't deserve to, although he loses in the deal with stocks. There is no hero to the story, though melodramatic, and it is a fault not a virtue; for in most things the picture is not at all realistic. The author wanted us to sympathize with, not hiss, the heroine's husband; yet the villain's husband has all the virtues. The acting is commendable; the picture was made artistically but weakly written. It is good entertainment. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
