On their way to lunch, they notice a poster announcing the appearance that evening of Vesta Voorhies, a famous actress. The name seems familiar to Tom and she turns out to be an old friend of his. After the performance that night, he takes her to dinner and tells her of his recent experiences. She sympathizes with him and agrees to help him win June. The opportunity comes when June happens into the restaurant and sees him dining with the actress. It arouses her envy, if not her jealousy. According to the plan laid out by Vesta, Tom invests some money in a bungalow in a suburban town and when he meets June, he tells her that he is engaged to be married to the young lady she saw him with at the bungalow, which he had purchased for a home.

Gets us deeply interested in Florence and leaves with only Edith
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Florence Turner can stand alone in a scene and by putting a state of mind in her facial expression, can tickle a knowing laugh that will reveal volumes; see the opening scene of this picture for what we mean. For evidence of her ability subtly to develop a significant situation, see the whole picture. She plays a girl with whom the hero (Tom Powers) is in love. He can't land her so gets an actress (Edith Hayward) to help in making her jealous and it ends with his marrying the actress. The picture is full of scenes, rich in freshly human significance and interests deeply. It shows Producer Larry Trimble's work at its best. The script was written by M.D. Merrick and is clearly developed; but the ending seems easily arrived at and is not strong for this reason. The picture gets us deeply interested in Florence and leaves with only Edith. The photography is almost perfect. A fine offering. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
