Wells, who has been living in luxury on his guardian's bounty, accepts the situation, much against his will. Flo is an uncouth country girl, brought up to be good and honest, but without any training in the arts of refinement and etiquette.

User reviews



A melodramatic picture that is ably handled and has much charm, due chiefly to the graceful way in which Miss May Buckley plays the leading role. The plot, although hardly vital, is sensational, affords a thrilling climax and holds attention throughout. Mr. Harry Meyer plays the man's lead with his usual intelligence and command of his art. Miss Buckley plays the'part of a country girl who, by the conditions of a will, is called upon to marry a man who she bad never met, a club-man. This man (Mr. Meyer) marries her to get the money and then neglects her. A second man is introduced, and him the girl skilfully uses to waken jealousy and love in her husband. It is she who wins by waiting. The camera work is of the usual Lubin quality. - The Moving Picture World, May 18, 1912
