Storyline

Captain Clifford, U.S.A., arrives at Yokohama and is met by Marie Wilson, his fiancée and daughter of United States Ambassador Wilson. The coming of Clifford is looked upon with keen displeasure by Bainbridge, Secretary of Ambassador Wilson, who himself is in love with Marie. Shortly after his arrival Clifford meets an old acquaintance, Captain Amato of the Japanese navy. Bainbridge is on friendly terms with Amato and as a result of his growing jealousy of Clifford he tries to convince Amato that Clifford is a spy. Amato casts the idea aside as absurd. Bainbridge then begins the execution of a plot which will clinch his defamatory charges against Clifford. Amato loves Yama, a Geisha girl. Bainbridge takes advantage of this and leads the American officer to a tea garden where he introduces him to Yama as an American millionaire. Clifford develops merely a passing interest for the Geisha girl. He is seen in her company by Amato and the Japanese officer's jealousy is aroused. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The Japanese scenes are very attractive
5 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel number, made in Japan, with William Clifford and company in the cast. The Japanese scenes are very attractive, though some of them have an effect of having been thrust in without regard to the plot. The later developments are tragic and hold the attention strongly. The lover of one of the Geisha girls becomes jealous of Clifford, through the machinations of the villainous Bainbridge. The girl is killed in the struggle. A good offering of its type. - The Moving Picture World, August 29, 1914
