Storyline

There is a touch of melodrama
8 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There is a touch of melodrama in these two reels, but it does no harm in fact, it seems to fit in. Ben Wilson and Robert Brower have the leads, ably assisted by Frank A. Lyon, who contributes a bit of comedy. Charles Sutton plays well the role of the friend who casts bread upon the waters. Gertrude McCoy in the part of the daughter of the old miner is charming. The picture is well produced by George Lessey and holds the interest all the way. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
