Storyline

Jean and Pierre are rivals for the hand of Babette. Jean is a mild, good-natured fellow, while Pierre is more quick-tempered and stolid; of the two we would select jean as a more desirable life partner, but unaccountably to us, Babette accepts Pierre for her husband. Jean is fond of music, he plays the bridal music at the wedding of Pierre and Babette, and while he loves the girl the magnanimity of his own soul will not permit him to wish his fortunate rival naught but well. Babette loves music and Jean is always a welcome visitor to her home. She delights to hear him play his accordion, not so with her husband, for he has grown jealous of Jean and orders him from the house. Pierre, who is more or less a soldier of fortune, under the cover of darkness or when he thinks there is no danger of discovery, ventures on smuggling trips to derelict ships, in other words, he is not above thievery, when the coast is clear. On one of these expeditions, the officers on a revenue cuter catch him ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The story is one of those simple heart tales
25 January 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a story of love and jealousy, developing some excellent character drawing in the two men. Jean, played by William Humphreys, is a well-drawn, good-natured, honest fellow. Pierre, played by Tefft Johnson, is quite the opposite, yet Babette, played by Florence E. Turner, selects Pierre as her husband. He becomes jealous without cause. But later, when Pierre is shot while smuggling, it is Jean who ministers to him, who hides him until the officers pass, and binds up his wounds, as his life blood ebbs away. The story is one of those simple heart tales. The audience follows with attention from beginning to end. - The Moving Picture World, May 27, 1911
