Storyline

Two young composers love the same girl, one of them is injured in a football game and so considers himself out of the race. Between the boys there is a sympathetic feeling which amounts to a mental telegraph system, what one thinks the other knows; when an accident happens to one the other is conscious of it. After the wedding the crippled youth tries to forget his love in his work. He achieves success. His one-time pal and the girl they both love find times very hard; things go from bad to worse with them until the girl is ill and the young husband, away from his partner's influence, seems utterly unable to write any more successful songs. Meanwhile the cripple has composed a song which means fame and fortune and greater influence than he has ever had. Just as he is about to have it published he learns definitely that his telepathic impression is correct; that his partner and the girl are at the verge of starvation. Going to his room he fights the battle with himself and decides to ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Will excite discussion of a kind that will advertise the houses where it will be shown
6 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Telepathy, which is the faculty claimed by some by which the mind of one man is enabled to make his thoughts real and clear to the mind of another at a great distance, is utilized to give a strange and weird climax to this unusual picture. On this account, the picture is instructive, as showing this peculiar phenomena in a most vivid way. Nothing could be plainer than the story, as it is developed, and it makes a deep impression. We commend it as a picture out of the ordinary, one that will excite discussion of a kind that will advertise the houses where it will be shown, as well as motion pictures generally. Two musical composers, very close to each other in their friendship, love the same girl. The more original of the two is crippled by an accident and the other wins her. He didn't know how dependent he was on his friend for musical ideas, and after the marriage and the friends are separated, his work loses quality. The lonely genius has become famous. He hears of the distress of his friend and the woman whom he loves, but his offers of help are not accepted. He has a new composition and feels sure that it will make him famous. He also knows of his strange faculty, and, although a great distance separates the friends, he throws his music into the other's heart, giving it to him without his knowing. It is very well acted by Mary Fuller, Augustus Phillips and Barry O'Moor. The photography is excellent. - The Moving Picture World, May 11, 1912
