Storyline

When Kelly saved Pete Scarlett from the consequences of his dishonesty at a poker game in a little western mining camp, he did not dream of the astonishing disclosure that grateful and unfortunate young man was about to make. When they reached Kelly's cabin, Scarlett informed his rescuer that his real name was Peter Wilding, and showed him papers proving him to be the heir of the late Silas Wilding of Eastwich, L.I. Scarlett further informed Kelly that he had not long to live, and suggested that he, Kelly, assume the name of Wilding and go east to claim Silas Wilding's legacy. Shortly afterwards, Scarlett died of heart disease. Kelly immediately came east, registered at the hotel as Peter H. Wilding, and convinced the lawyers that he was Silas Wilding's nephew. His troubles, however, soon commenced.

An entirely unexpected outcome
18 February 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An adaption of the story which appeared in the Popular Magazine, by W.B.M. Ferguson. It is in two parts. George A. Lessey is the director. Ben Wilson is featured, supported by a strong cast, which is large in numbers. The plot develops the fact that one man takes up the identity of another to save a legacy. Shortly after the agreement, the legal legatee dies. There are many complications occur in this picture, which vamp around, after involving most of the characters, into an entirely unexpected outcome. The suspense exists to the closing of the last scene, which develops pleasingly. - The Moving Picture World, September 26, 1914
