A rather strange film from D.W. Griffith. A father sacrifices his own happiness in order to take care of his daughter. Years later the girl falls in love and chooses this man over her father, which leads dad into a state of depression. There's the typical Griffith melodrama on display here but I'm really not sure what he was going for in this film. I thought he was trying to tell another story of the poor, which works in the first part of the film but why the father would be so depressed that his daughter meets another man never plays out.
You can get this film through Grapevine as part of their D.W. Griffith: The Director series.
