The story is clear and clean
14 March 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A most excellent beginning for a new concern. The story is clear and clean and the acting very good indeed in some scenes. There is, however, too much evidence of the production having been put on by a man whose experience has been gained on the living stage. Cutting out one or two scenes and substituting printed titles would improve the film and less time should be given to the supposedly speaking parts. No doubt this is also evident to the producer after seeing the story on the screen, where action speaks louder than words, and the fault will be remedied in the future. In fact it has already been much corrected in "St. Elmo," the second picture of the new company, to be issued this week. In photography the work ranks well with that of older concerns and is far superior to some. "The Actor's Children" is a film that will please. - The Moving Picture World, March 19, 1910
