Storyline

Rev. William Wells, Dean of Cresswell, has two daughters, Bess and Louise. Bess wants to go to London to study art under a well-known master. Her talent as a painter, if she has any at all, is only passable. Louise, who really has the gift, sometimes gives two or three touches to Bessie's work that make them possible. One of these sketches decides the Dean to consent to Bessie's wishes and the sketch influences Harry Vane, the London artist, to accept Bessie as a pupil. This artist is successful and has many pupils. He has a gentle caressing way of treating the girls and Bessie, who is very much taken with him from the start, being young and impressionable, mistakes his manner and thinks that he is in love with her. This not being the case and Vane, seeing how matters stand, tells her that she has no talent and that she is wasting her time at his school. This is such a shock to Bessie that she breaks down and returns home in a hurry. When Louise hears her sister's story she believes ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Well worth seeing again on the same day
21 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The daughters are Mary Fuller and Elsie McLeod. The dean is Robert Brower. Marc MacDermott has the role of an artist with whom the latter of the girls one of his pupils, falls in love. She is without talent. When the artist discovers her infatuation he rather rudely dismisses her and sends her back to her father. The humiliation of the girl is resented by the older sister. She joins the school. The artist falls in Jove with her; when he declares his affection for her she denounces him and returns home triumphant, and in love with the man she repudiated. The untalented girl sees the situation. She tells the unhappy girl that the artist was not at fault; to him she sends a letter suggesting that he call on her sister. He does. All ends happily. There are some splendid situations. Bannister Merwin is the author, and the hand of a master is always in evidence. Mr. MacDermott and Miss Fuller contribute to a drama that is well worth seeing again on the same day, one of the best of a month. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
