Storyline

A careless nurse girl allowing the child to wander away, made the mother realize the poignancy of the little verse: "If we knew the baby's fingers / Pressed against the window pane / Would be cold and stiff tomorrow, / Never trouble us again, / Would the bright eyes of our darling / catch the frown upon our brow, / Would the prints of rosy fingers, / Vex us then as they do now?" But a higher destiny watched the child and saw it safely home. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

An easily recognized Biograph style
2 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

There is an easily recognized Biograph style about this offering, which tells a not improbable and interesting story clearly. There is nothing great or even very clever about it; but it is somewhat emotional and well acted. It is set in and around one of the beautiful places in California and has some surf scenes along a sandy beach. Blanche Sweet and Henry Walthall play a married couple whose little girl falls asleep in a dory on the sand and is carried by the tide out to sea. It is some time before her parents find that she has been rescued. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
