Storyline

The old father in this Biograph story was possessed of such unreasonable pride as to cause much misery and heartache. We cannot consistently call it pride, but rather, narrow prejudice. Mr. and Mrs. Sonthcomb dearly loved their only daughter Ann, but, being Quakers, had set ideas. Ann was a pretty girl of twenty, bright, vivacious and romantic, and loved her parents devotedly, but she chafed under what she deemed almost parental despotism. They decried any ebullition her youth might induce, and frowned into silence her joyous ringing laughter. This condition told on her and she longed for life's radiant sunshine, love. It comes at last. Allen Edwards, a concert singer, while driving his auto in the neighborhood of the old Quaker's farm, meets with a serious accident, and is carried to the Southcomb homestead.

Worked out with attention to details
6 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An exhibition of the results of pride which will, perhaps, arouse memories of more or less strength in the minds of a large number of people. A stubborn father, through unreasoning pride, brings much sorrow and many a heartache to his family. When he and his devoted wife are finally driven from their home to the poorhouse he becomes an object of contempt, a common ending of the proud. Then the disowned daughter comes to their rescue and succeeds in subduing her father's pride and thereby re-unites the family. The story is suggestive and causes those who see the film to apply the rule to their own experience, or, perhaps, the experience of someone they have known. Dramatically, the picture is worked out with attention to details, and, photographically, it is up to the Biograph standard. – The Moving Picture World, August 20, 1910
