Unusual dramatic situations with fidelity
28 April 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of insanity super-induced by excessive mental strain and its cure through sight of the person supposed to have been beyond recall. The principal interest is in the acting, which works out the unusual dramatic situations with fidelity and close attention to details. It is a film which will appeal to a large number because of its strength, though until the close it is rather depressing in its effect. This may have been why it was received without any applause. But it is a pleasure to find this company producing plays of strong human interest, thus affording their actors opportunity to show their mettle. The settings of the play are admirable, and the acting of a superior character. - The Moving Picture World, May 7, 1910
