Storyline

Mr. Burton leaves his bride of a few weeks to go off on a business trip. In the same boarding house at which Mrs. Burton is stopping are living an adventuress and a "sport," a man-about-town, one of the smooth-tongued gentry ready to make money or marplot, as the case may be. He sets evil designs on the young matron; the adventuress divines his intentions, and the sinner becomes a saint. The adventuress realizes he will have as easy a time in working destruction with the unsophisticated, unwary girl, as Roosevelt killing a grizzly with both hands, and she determines to prevent the murder of a soul. She warns the young woman, but advice seldom justifies itself; the wise need it not, and fools don't take it anyhow. She appeals to the man, but she might as well petition Satan to become a reformer. At last, in despair, she asks them both to come to her room to talk the matter over. They agree. An unseen observer, a serious person, sedate and sober, one of the clan of humans that long to ...

Sophisticated people will greatly enjoy
13 May 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very interesting picture; it is a melodrama of summer hotel life and, if taken as a whole, it is not a life portrayal, it has several very human and interesting portraits of modern characters. It takes a half- dozen types such as one might find in a summer hotel piazza (the saint, sinner, frivolous wife, sporty character, hotel keeper) and then very cleverly gets up a scandal about them which gives a very well utilized chance of showing just what part each of these characters takes in it. It shows, and the impression it creates is very clear and deep, how out of focus the world's view is likely to be in such cases. It's a picture that sophisticated people will greatly enjoy. It is moral and very commendable as deeply interesting and full of truth. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
