Storyline

James Mullen, living in retirement at his country villa since the death of his wife, finds consolation in the love of his two children. Clara and Vincent, aged ten and twelve years respectively. It has been their custom to visit their mother's grave and place a wreath of flowers upon it. Seven years later, the children now grown, Vincent leaves for the seminary to study for the priesthood, while Clara undertakes to console their father, promising not to forget their mother's grave. Vincent, now a seminarian, writes to his sister of how happy he is in the call of the church. Clara, while returning from the post office, whither she had gone in quest of a letter from Vincent, meets a handsome young man from the city.

Its influence cannot be shaken off
28 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The story of two partially orphaned children, brought up by their father, after the death of their mother. The boy turns out all right, but the girl, not knowing the machinations of men, elopes with a city man and for ten long years suffers the consequence of her folly. At last, the tempter being dead, she returns to her mother's grave, where she is found by her brother, and they are all once more united in their father's arms. It is not a pleasant story, yet it undoubtedly presents a phase of life which, in modifications, is more or less common. One doesn't care to dwell upon it, yet so well is it acted and so strongly does it appeal to one, that its influence cannot be shaken off. It lingers, regardless of the knowledge that it is only a picture. Perhaps it will teach its lesson. It is strong enough to do it without any question. - The Moving Picture World, October 1, 1910
