Dramatic situations not commonly seen in photoplays
31 December 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The interest in this picture increases in intensity as it runs, to the climax which comes with the second marriage with the doctor, and the death which follows immediately. It is an interesting complication, developing dramatic situations not commonly seen in photoplays. The duel, in which the man and woman are mortally wounded, is properly suppressed. The results are sufficient. The death of the man first, allowing the woman to marry again with her last breath, insuring her child's honor, is a fitting close to a picture altogether out of the ordinary. The acting is upon a high plane and the photography is clear.
