Stormy affairs of the heart breed jealousy and a desire for bloody vengeance in this beautifully-shot romantic drama. When a mountain guide takes a group of Americans on a Peak District climbing trip (the famous Dove Holes Caves in Dovedale are on the itinerary), his sweetheart mistakenly believes he has eyes for a female mountaineer. Her enraged brother desires bloody redress. It can only end in tears.

The beauty of this affable domestic morality play by Max Linder rests entirely with the actor/director’s seemingly inexhaustible ability to balance his ineffably graceful screen presence against the character of a less than competent husband, consigned to his own dysfunctional devices after the wife runs home to Mother. Linder’s comedies were always like this; forever two steps less unhinged, even in their slapstick elements, than the lovely knockabout grotesquerie of Keystone; and with a shade more emphasis on character. Though never as wildly successful in the States as the pantheon comics (Chaplin, Arbuckle, Keaton, Lloyd, etc), they nevertheless all took away something from Linder, whithout which their work, indeed the soul of American screen comedy itself, would have been a very different, possibly less charming, species.
