A fine picture of a type of aristocratic gentleman
12 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The preliminary statement in this picture is not so interesting as it ought to be; it isn't convincing enough. The situation is this; Madge, daughter of a Tennessee moonshiner, asked permission to nurse young Brownlee, who had come to the mountains in search of adventure, and had been shot while taking part with a sheriff's posse in an attack on her father's distillery. Her father had just been killed. By the time the elder Brownlee arrived the two had fallen in love. He attempts to keep the two lovers apart, but is not able and in the end, after Madge has come to the east to find why the young man has not kept his promise to come back to her, he gives in. Miss Gardner's characterization keeps the picture interesting. The elder Brownlee is a fine picture of a type of aristocratic gentleman. The picture is acceptable, but can hardly be very popular. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
