Produced by Hollywood's first permanent movie studio, Nestor, this one-reel melodrama featured Harold Lockwood as a jealous husband who misinterprets a letter from his wife's brother, a wanted criminal. Dorothy Davenport, the real-life wife of Wallace Reid, played the wife and character villain Henry Otto the wayward brother. Founded by film pioneer David Horsley in 1910, the Nestor company was housed in the former Blondeau's Tavern on the northwest corner of Sunset Boulevard and Gower Street in Hollywood. The company later became part of the Universal combine.
