Storyline

Surrounded by the hills and forests of a Adirondacks, Sam Hillyar, a woman hater, lives with his servant in a well-equipped mountain home. Winter has covered everything with a heavy layer of snow, which is still falling. Miss Mary Wright, who has been invited to spend the weekend with her friend, who lives in a neighboring bungalow, misses the train upon which she is expected to arrive. Later, when she reaches the lonely little railroad station, no one is there to meet her; she starts out on foot to reach her friend's home. She struggles through the deep snow in the midst of the blinding storm, until she is almost exhausted. She sees Sam Hillyar's house in the distance, pushes on in the hope of reaching it before darkness sets in and ask for shelter for the night; weak and faint she knocks at the door and her summons is answered by the old servant, who admits her and notifies his master, who reluctantly consents to allow the woman to stay under his roof. Her reception is a cold one ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The dinner scene was best of all
15 March 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This exceedingly amusing picture is full of comedy spirit of the best Vitagraph kind. Julia Swayne could hardly have a more charming part, nor play it better than she plays this young girl caught in the blizzard and forced to ask for shelter at the first house, the woman hater's. She played it as a young woman who was very sure of herself, yet very prettily. There was true humor in the breakfast scenes; there was more in the luncheon scene, and the dinner scene was best of all, though the scene in the kitchen was also very amusing. It is a well conducted play from first to last and one that should greatly please cultivated audiences. - The Moving Picture World, July 29, 1911
