No one can successfully deny its dramatic power
10 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The principal theme in this story is a mother's sacrifices of her own love to insure the happiness of her daughter. The mother found herself compelled to run a gambling house. She has kept her daughter in ignorance of this, and has had her educated in a convent. The man to whom the mother is engaged falls in love with the daughter without knowing this relationship. Almost the same thing was shown in a film released a day or two before. Another coincidence was that it was released by the company that is most like the Biograph. True, the incidents varied, but the main idea is the same, viz.: a mother's sacrificing herself for her daughter's happiness. The picture is not agreeable, though no one can successfully deny its dramatic power. - The Moving Picture World, April 29, 1911
