Edwin Booth lives on with William Farnum's performance
16 July 2000 | by (Fort Smith, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

All I could think of was my late grandfather, who probably only saw 1 movie in his life (Mrs. Miniver). He would have truly loved this old antique of a movie. The director was obviously still stuck in the silent era as most of the actors emote something awful. However, there is something magic about William Farnum's performance. I read where his first job on stage was in a play with Edwin Booth and even with a fake French accent I could hear Booth standing right behind him. The story is a real throwback with everyone turning out to be the long lost brother, child, father in the end. As an antique, probably outdated the day it was released, I forgive it of its sins and really enjoyed watching it with a deep sense of how far we have come. I also think I spotted Margaret Hamilton, that old wicked witch from the Wizard of Oz in a small role of an angry mother throwing sticks at The Drifter. Any future watchers of this movie, please keep your eyes peeled for her. But I'd put 5 bucks on me being right!
