Trivia

Charles Chaplin who appears uncredited as a customer in the bar, was a business associate of 'G.M. Anderson', who appeared in a cameo in Chaplin's film The Champion (1915). The main titles to this film read "...slightly assisted by Charles Chaplin", which suggests that Chaplin possibly hand a hand in the story or direction of this film, especially as he used the same story again for his later comedy Police (1916).

Not Bad, But Could Have Been Better
15 January 2003 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This works all right, although it could probably have been better. The story concerns a brutish criminal (Broncho Billy Anderson) who goes through some experiences that cause him to reconsider his way of life - the kind of story that was fairly common in the two-reel features of the era. One problem is that for quite a while it wavers inconsistently between tension and slapstick, so that it's hard to tell where it is going. It's interesting to see Charlie Chaplin in a couple of the scenes, but he's really just a sidelight.

The story itself has a worthwhile point, but would have been even more effective in more skilled hands. Someone like D.W. Griffith could have made it easier for the audience to overlook the crucial coincidences in the plot, and could have evoked more emotion in the climactic scenes. It's not a bad movie, though; it's just that there are obvious ways it could have been better.
