Charles Leonard Fletcher

“Colonel Breeze, a Western gambler, takes passage on the steamship Mystic in pursuit of a widow, Mrs. Redway (May Purcell). Recovering from a siege of seasickness as a nor’easter is brewing, he discloses himself to the object of his affection. The storm breaks, the ship sinks and the gambler saves the widow’s life, the inference being that he wins her hand in the process.” The change from the shipboard to a rescue scene was badly worked. Bad handling of the lights. Mr.Fletcher could be eaisly seen taking his place among the waves.
