Storyline

Madge, the wife of Hugh Winchester, is unhappy with her husband, who is a cold, domineering type. While wandering about the grounds of the Winchester estate, she meets a young man who has left his motorcycle in the bushes and is eating a lunch under the trees. They talk and she finds him very interesting. The next day they meet again, purposely. The stranger is fascinated by Madge and thinking she is the daughter of the house, stays outside the gate until dark and then steals up to the mansion. Through one of the long windows of the drawing-room he sees her lying on the couch, a telegram in her hand. She has just received word from her husband that he will not be home that night. The young man enters and rouses her. Her tell-tale eyes and flushed, downcast looks, confess more plainly than words that she has been thinking of him.

True human emotion
30 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Francilla Billington puts true human emotion into this two-part picture of a miss-judged wife. The story is well managed and made the more effective by excellent photography and its setting in a beautiful dwelling, surrounded by a garden of roses and flowers of all kinds. The other characters, the husband (Jack Livingston) who wrongly suspects her of faithlessness, the masher who fools himself without reason (W.E. Lawrence) and the crook who breaks in (George Seigman) play their parts well in support, and the whole, written by Christie Cabinne, makes a pleasing and worthy offering. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
