The silent picture can sometimes go where words cannot follow
The knowledge of the fact that the village girl whom he had married was homeless and yet beyond his help, for he couldn't find her, did give the actor, hero of this picture, a dignity that was human and manly; but the picture is not well named, for the girl is the center of interest all through the film. In the early scenes, the man is shown as merely a barnstormer. The hard experience of the girl who fell in love with him, ran away and married him and was soon separated from him but, in abject poverty, found him in the end, grips our sympathies. The story is very well managed and at least two of the scenes are filled with significance. The silent picture can sometimes go where words cannot follow. The two great scenes are when the father brings the girl home after she has married the actor, and again when she finds her father dead in his chair. It is extremely well acted in most of its scenes. It is a strong, gripping, human picture. People will be glad to see it. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
