The story seems hurriedly prepared
20 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is much to commend, even to admire in this offering; for, while the story seems hurriedly prepared, it has been very carefully and imaginatively produced. The human characters convince with power, except toward the end, where they become plot-ridden and unlikely, and the worst of it is, the plot gave plenty of natural possibilities, if the author had cared to seek for them. It was not natural nor necessary to make the bridegroom take his wounded sister home to the empty cabin rather than to the house of his sweetheart, where all the folks were, his and hers. Then the mind notices a lack in not finding a minister at the girl's house to do the marrying. As the plot now is, it would have been awkward to have had one there, but one might have been used to good advantage in a more natural plot. Would it not have been like life to have had the old man. since the bridegroom was lingering, slip out with his gun to see why? Then the younger brother might have caught a glimpse of him just before the little sister approached; might have had some reason to fire into the bushes. The people at the girl's house would have heard the shot and been full of consternation. The bridegroom and the old man would have heard the shot and would have crept near to see cautiously. The boy, thinking that he had killed his sister, would have slipped away as soon as he saw his brother coming, and the bridegroom and the old man would have met at the unconscious girl. This situation would certainly be dramatically effective and it would not be hard to develop it further. As an offering, the picture is good. It is splendidly acted by everyone in it. The producer deserves great credit. It is clearly photographed. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
