It is fair criticism to point out that hate is a sterile emotion
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An acceptable picture. Yet it is fair criticism to point out that hate is a sterile emotion and that art that deals with love and forgiveness makes a deeper and more lasting impression than that which pictures vengeance to us. Art was born to give the soul wings and a sky to fly up into. It is not hampered in dealing with evil; but the best use of shadow is to set forth the bright colors. The first scene of this picture gives us a father who disowns his daughter because she will marry a man whom he dislikes. With praiseworthy economy of our attention, the scenes that follow show this young women widowed with one child. Later, she is gray-haired and her son has grown to manhood. She is dying and her last request to her father for forgiveness is brutally denied. The son and grandson is a reporter. Through him, a charge of bribery is brought home to the old judge, his grandfather. The judge pleads with him for mercy; but he shows to him his last harsh note to his daughter: "No, you have made your bed and must lie in it."
