The offering stands on its story
4 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A pretty picture with a good deal in its atmosphere that is well-bred, even distinguished; the acting of one of the lesser characters made it fall from this peculiar grace at one or two points. The story is freshly conceived, new and interesting. The leading role, the heiress, is a fortunate one for Alice Joyce and she fills it very pleasingly. Tom Moore, as her father's secretary, plays the other romantic role which the story makes secondary and conventional. Isabel Vernon, as the girl's mother is not always sure in her drawing and Richard Purdon, the father, though natural, is also conventional at most times. The offering stands on its story, its pretty scenes and its fine photography and.will be much liked by all kinds. - The Moving Picture World, May 24, 1913
