The scenes are very attractively pictured
22 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A drama with Alice Joyce and Tom Moore in the leading roles. The scenes are very attractively pictured. The story is one in which a girl, jealous of her mother's secretary, hides the jewel box and throws suspicion on the latter. Her plan was perhaps a natural one, but lacked the dramatic touch necessary to make such a scene memorable. Tom's meeting with the girl at the beginning of the film seemed a little overdrawn. As a whole, this is very entertaining. - The Moving Picture World, July 12, 1913
