Lacks the opportunity of giving a sustained impression
11 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

King Baggot who, with Jane Fernley, plays this picture of the mountains, lacks the opportunity of giving a sustained impression that he had in his recent picture, "In Old Tennessee." The idea that this story tries to present is good; but the scenario lacks strength. It hasn't been worked out with the objectivity that is necessary in a very effective work of art. Objectivity can be run to the ground; for, of course, every wholly mechanical melodrama is wholly objective. But the story work of art needs a formula, even though it always hides it, if it is to stretch us on the rack of suspense. It is an offering that will get past; but will not be likely to create much enthusiasm. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
