A subtle study in the impulses and influences which mold men's actions

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
7 July 2015

"And a little child shall lead them." Whether or not one is ready to accept this picture in its entirety one must, indeed, admit its dramatic power and agree that it is graced by consummate acting. Is is not difficult to understand the indecision which possesses Raymond. Such indecision has been characteristic of men since there were men. But the interposition of the child arouses something in him which lay dormant, as it does in the heart of main a man until an influence like this causes it to blaze forth and sweep nil obstacles from its path. Men are impulsive, and while their impulses are not always to be commended, this picture conclusively shows that they can be made right under the proper influence. In reality this picture is a subtle study in the impulses and influences which mold men's actions, and as such it possesses more than the ordinary dramatic and ethical interest. - The Moving Picture World, July 9, 1910
