Storyline

The first half is of deep interest
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this four-reel story the first half is of deep interest. Later through the introduction of episodic actions that run to too great a length, the holding quality flags. While we are in doubt as to whether the divorced woman is in love with her first husband or whether she is only fooling him and really cares for her present mate we are entertained and held. The photography is charming, and so likewise are the backgrounds. The acting is of high quality. One of the best scenes is that in the courtroom after the jury has retired to consider its verdict and the wife tries to console her husband. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
