Visit on IMDb
Jean and Pierre are rivals for the hand of Babette. Jean is a mild, good-natured fellow, while Pierre is more quick-tempered and stolid; of the two we would select jean as a more desirable life partner, but unaccountably to us, Babette accepts Pierre for her husband. Jean is fond of music, he plays the bridal music at the wedding of Pierre and Babette, and while he loves the girl the magnanimity of his own soul will not permit him to wish his fortunate rival naught but well. Babette loves music and Jean is always a welcome visitor to her home. She delights to hear him play his accordion, not so with her husband, for he has grown jealous of Jean and orders him from the house. Pierre, who is more or less a soldier of fortune, under the cover of darkness or when he thinks there is no danger of discovery, ventures on smuggling trips to derelict ships, in other words, he is not above thievery, when the coast is clear. On one of these expeditions, the officers on a revenue cuter catch him at his nefarious work and in his attempt to escape is shot and fatally wounded. Before the officers can reach the shore and catch up with him he reaches his home, where Jean happens to be at the time of the smuggler's entrance, and he shows his loyalty and friendship to the man who has mistrusted him, by hiding the unfortunate man beneath a pile of fishing nets until the pursuers, who have come to the house in search of their quarry, have gone. Pierre's wife is distressed and can do little to aid her husband, but Jean tries to stop the flow of blood from the dying man's wounds and in every way administers to his comfort. It is of no avail, however, as Pierre dies in Babette's arms. Written By Moving Picture World synopsis  Less
