Storyline

Away up in the lonely northern land lives a trapper and his young wife. He follows his occupation from day to day without noticing that his helpmate finds life somewhat monotonous. In this remote household there comes, by accident, a handsome stranger who is hunting in the country. He gets separated from his party and meeting with an accident is found helpless by the husband, who brings him to his home to be cared for by his wife. As the days pass they fall in love with each other. The husband returns at a moment when a love avowal has been exchanged. What does he do? Confront them and kill either or both? No, he conceals his knowledge. Shortly afterwards the woman agrees to elope with her admirer. They have barely started away when the man is seriously injured by falling in a bear trap. The woman ministers to him. The husband appears. His mind is made up. She cannot return to his home. Her lover is wounded. The husband leaves them and returns to his lonely hut.

It isn't made powerfully convincing
4 October 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture of the lonely North Woods; but one whose backgrounds are not very suggestive of the wilderness. We have the log cabin, the trapper, his wife and the second man, a belated, winter-bound hunter, and we realize a loneliness that is driving the woman distracted. The outcome of the situation is not very improbable; but it isn't made powerfully convincing. Miss Vivian Prescott, recently with the Biograph Company, plays the woman; Mr. King Baggot plays the husband and Mr. Daily plays the belated hunter. The acting is, as was to be expected, excellent. The photographs are good. It will serve as a fair feature. - The Moving Picture World, March 16, 1912
