Storyline

Their anniversary over, the guests going, two weary old people sit by the fireside to rest. They fall asleep and dream of their past life. Their dreams carry them from boy and girlhood all through life to this day, greatest of all, their golden wedding. Their first meeting shows them, at the age of five, on their way to school, and even then, as young as they are, the seed of love is sown. A few years and we see them growing past the school age. Next we see the youth proposing and being accepted: the happiest moment of their lives, their first-born baby. War between the North and South breaks out and the youth is called to fight for his side, the South. As he goes away he puts the picture of his wife in his pocket next to his heart.

Has been done in pictures time and again
4 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A reverie story that has been done in pictures time and again. An old couple, after their golden wedding, dream of their youth, through war times to the present. With good, old tunes to help out the suggestion, it might make a very acceptable offering indeed. But in this case it must hold by its theme alone, as it has not been done artistically nor expensively; yet it will surely make the tunes go well. The author, Herbert Prior, deserves no credit for anything new. It is naturally acted by Harry Beaumont and Mabel Trunnelle, who are well supported by William West, Adele Clark, Kathleen Coughlin and W. Porter. The photography is fair. - The Moving Picture World, May 24, 1913
