Storyline

Mrs. Lirriper keeps a boarding house. Major Jackman, dissatisfied with Mrs. Wozenham's, further down the street, comes to live at Mrs. Lirriper's and becomes the "star" boarder. Mr. Edson and his young wife take rooms at Mrs. Lirriper's. They are a young couple, not long married, and appear to be devoted to each other, though the Major has a sort of half-defined prejudice against Edson. One day in the midst of their happiness, Edson is called suddenly away on important business. He takes an affectionate farewell of his wife, but the days become weeks and the weeks months, and nothing is heard from him. Mrs. Edson grows pale and anxious. At last one day a letter comes. The Major and Mrs. Lirriper, who have long suspected that something is wrong, leave the letter at her door, and she reads it. It tells her that she has been deceived and deserted; that her marriage was a sham one. She falls in a faint, and is revived by Mrs. Lirriper, That night, driven to despair, Mrs. Edson goes out ...

A thoroughly delightful offering
20 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Mr. Van Dyke Brooke, who produced this picture, an adaptation of a chapter from Dickens by W.A. Tremayne, and who also plays an important role in it, has made a thoroughly delightful offering, full of the real Dickens' atmosphere and full of old time courtliness. Mrs. Mary Maurice plays Mrs. Lirriper and her work and her kindly face are too well known to need further comment. She fills the part of this very human boarding house keeper in a very pleasing way. Clara K. Young plays Mr. Edson, whom her worthless husband (Courtney Foote) abandons at Mrs. Lirriper's. Van D. Brooke plays Major Jackman. It is surely a fine offering and its humanity and heart interest pleased a large audience. - The Moving Picture World, October 26, 1912
