Not so bad
25 August 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I found some interest in the film.

You could follow the story line, it all stuck together and had its climax. Nothing spectacular but one of the many movies to pumped out for the hungry theaters of the time. It did its job, told a story that kept the audience watching to the end. It was obviously a too in depth a story to tell in such a short film.

The man acting the blind musician a few times look like he was going to sway/topple over. But actually was quite credible as a blind person, certainly better than many other efforts.

Ruth Hart's performance was good and she showed some potential. Wonder why she disappeared from acting after 1910? Marriage? The other interest is seeing the 19 year old Mary Pickford as minor support player still learning her trade.
