Storyline

The first scene shows the office of Comer & Mathison, contractors, and the dismissal of Louis Mitchell, a salesman, not because of his lack of ability but because of the hard times which make it necessary for the firm to cut down expenses. Mitchell pleads hard for his position and for the opportunity to do great things for the firm, and intimates that he cannot accept dismissal because he has just been married. This argument, while a good one, does not appeal to the hard-headed business man, and even Mitchell's producing of the photograph of the "only girl" fails to convince the older man. So Mitchell is obliged to go home to the little wife and tell her that they are now without an income. But is she dismayed? Not in the slightest degree.

Filled with the life which the Edison company knows so well
6 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

A novel subject, or perhaps it is better to say, a novel commercial subject. It is the story, graphically told, of a young American businessman, who, in the face of almost insurmountable difficulties, secures a large English contract. It is a romantic subject in that it affects his future success and the happiness of his brave little wife, whose tact and encouragement were important factors in the result. Acted with appreciation and filled with the life which the Edison company knows so well how to put into such dramas, the picture should prove popular. It discloses in some degree the methods frequently used in securing contracts. Few understand how this is done and its adequate illustration in a motion picture should be all the more interesting for that reason. - The Moving Picture World, August 20, 1910
