Storyline

Jim Grant has pretty well gone to the bad. Letters from his mother in the country ask him to help her with a little money and the knowledge of her need almost makes him yield to the temptation to join one of his companions, Kid Burke, in a burglary but the same letter is the cause of a row between Jim and Burke and the latter is unceremoniously put out of Jim's room. Jim becomes acquainted with Esther Benton who lives with her blind mother in the next room in the tenement. She is in financial straits but through an unexpected stroke of good fortune she receives a sum of money, large enough to supply her present needs. She puts the money away to await the demand of the rent collector but Jim, who has another appeal from his mother, knows about Esther's money and on Easter eve, while the child is out, he tiptoes into the room, where is only the blind mother, and takes the money.

Leonie Flugrath makes a strong appeal
21 August 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture with an ethical object; it is somewhat sentimental. Perhaps it is the least dramatic picture written by Bannister Merwin in many weeks; it is slow. The quality it has comes from its faces, which are very well worthwhile. That thug, played by Harry Gripp, a new player to us. is fine. We want to see Mr. Gripp again. Cora Williams' old blind woman is also good, and Leonie Flugrath, in her role, makes a strong appeal, Herbert Prior and Mrs. Erskine are good as the father and mother of Jim, played by Augustus Phillips. Richard Ridgley plays a rent collector. The photography is clear. The producer, C.J. Brabin deserves credit for sets and scenes. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
