Storyline

Howard Sterling mate aboard his father's coasting vessel, is very much in love with Millie Sawyer. On his return from a voyage, he brings Millie a lantern which he tells her to place in her window when his ship is passing that he may know she is still thinking of him. Although she is very fond of Howard, Millie, it must be confessed, is something of a flirt. Joe Gorman, a mysterious young man with plenty of money and no visible means of support, attracts her almost as much as Howard. Gorman kisses her one day while Howard is watching. To the sailor's indignation, Millie does not appear to resent it particularly, and when he upbraids her with her fault, she grows very angry with him. Sad at heart, Howard sets out on his voyage, vowing to have nothing more to do with so fickle a girl. The mysterious Gorman is in reality the chief of a band of wreckers.

The backgrounds are excellently chosen
13 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The Maine coast with a rocky promontory forms the background of this romantic story. At the end, the heroine throws the villain, the wrecker who had been trying to lure the ship of her lover on the rocks, over this promontory after a most unconvincing struggle. The backgrounds are excellently chosen and very well photographed and the author, Monte Katterjohn, has drawn two or three interesting characters; but character drawing is more effective in a realistic story than in an ultra-romantic and very unconvincing one like this. It seemed a bit tiresome to us. The producer is Walter Edwin. Mary Fuller and Augustus Phillips have the interesting roles. - The Moving Picture World, September 20, 1913
