It is a romance with some poetry
26 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

There seems to be an old-time, and we don't mean old-fashioned, quality about this picture by Emmett C. Hall, and it seemed to take with the audience strongly. It is a romance with some poetry, a convincing simplicity and also that indescribable touch of personality that has made Arthur Johnson probably the most popular player on the screen. The story is fresh enough, but not new. In it an actress who is lost in the woods is forced by a blizzard to spend a day or so in the cabin of a queer, lonely farmer. The players are Arthur Johnson, Lottie Briscoe and Howard Mitchell. The plot is clear, sensible and well-knit. The photography is of good quality. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
