Storyline

Sue Joyce, a whimsical young girl, while attracted to Jack Temple, still coquettes with other young men. Even after their engagement, she mildly flirts with other men, and one day she is caught by Jack sitting in a summer garden with another young man, having her palm read. Jack reproves her bitterly, and, going home, packs his trunk and leaves for the South. At the railway station his suitcase is stolen by a sea-faring man, who later dresses in his clothes, and, carrying a picture of Sue, takes passage on board a steamer. The ship is burned and the thief is identified as Jack. Upon learning of the report of his death, Jack telegraphs to his parents that it is all a mistake, and the overjoyed parents convey the news to the heartbroken Sue, whose mind is a little affected by grief. Even when Jack comes home she flees from him, until he changes her delusive mind by playing on the piano the sweet love melody, "Love's Old Sweet Song," when she slowly comes to him.

A pretty story, rather weird
19 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pretty story, rather weird, notable for picturesque settings and smooth action. Augustus Phillips and Mabel Trunnelle play the lovers, and Richard Sutton the father of the former. The photography is good; in the meeting of the lovers in the graveyard, unusually so. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
