Storyline

Alexander Morton, nicknamed Sandy, has been infatuated with an uneducated young woman, Kate Clayton. He becomes tired of her and they separate, and Kate, who is fond of Sandy, never lets him know that he is the father of her child, Tommy, who was born several months after the separation. Years pass and Sandy becomes a drunkard. Into his life at this period comes Miss Mary, a schoolteacher. She first sees Sandy in a drunken stupor, his face upturned to the sun. As she is placing his hat over his face, he arouses, and her evident disgust causes him to feel a sense of shame at his condition. He tries to improve his appearance and an awakened ambition causes him to look for and secure a position on a ranch. Learning of her fondness for wild flowers, Sandy frequently takes a bunch of them to the schoolhouse. At the end of the term Miss Mary arranges a picnic for the children and Sandy assists her in making the day enjoyable. By this time his devotion has won the heart of the school teacher...

It has nothing that is great
31 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture of a profligate and of his remorse. The story is clearly rather than convincingly pictured and its producer has not been careful to keep out all small inconsistencies. As an offering, it stands securely; it has nothing that is great, but seemed to interest the audience. The author, Wallace Clifton, has developed with some freshness a situation that will always be acceptable when well done. Of all its players Emma Bell is the most natural and simple. Clara Williams is never simple, yet seemed to please the audience with her pictures of the little mountain school teacher. Edgar Jones is also apt to put melodramatic overemphasis into his gestures at moments and there is a large following that likes this, but it isn't the most forceful method. F.J. Grandon is the producer. The photography is clear enough.
