Storyline

Dr. Gilderbrand has a large and remunerative practice in the East Side. He is very soon to be married. The doctor is to give up his East Side practice and buy one in the country, where his fiancée lives.

A rich story behind the plot that has never been told
28 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The burglar "doing a job" finds on a stand the photograph of his friend, an East Side doctor who once saved the life of his little girl. This can be foreseen from the first and if it were all the picture showed it would be both trite and no longer dramatic; but the author (A. B. Cooper) and the producer (Walter Edwin) have worked together to fill the picture with fresh and convincingly human things and we find a rich story behind the plot that has never been told and makes the offering one worthwhile, one that will be liked. It is a picture full of refinement and beauty and with an unobtrusive wholesomeness. The acting is as a whole quite up to the Edison high standard. Herbert Prior is the doctor. Mabel Trunnelle, his fiancée whose house the burglar (Charles Ogle) attempts to rob. Elizabeth Miller is the burglar's wife and Helen Coughlin his child. The photography is good. The audience seemed to like the offering much. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
