Storyline

At the head of Casco Bay, Peter Fife, keeper of the lighthouse nearby, lives alone with his beautiful seventeen-year-old daughter. The girl has been blind from birth, and the contact with jovial fishermaiden companions so saddens her that the old father has determined to try to have her sight restored. This he is unable to do for financial reasons, but Harry, a fisherman, the girl's lover, saves all of his scant salary for months until he accumulates enough to pay for an operation. Dick Drayton, a half-witted vagabond, sees Harry give the money to Marie's father, and he determines to steal it. That evening the lighthouse keeper catches Drayton in the act of taking the money, and he ejects him from the house, after administering a severe thrashing. The unsuccessful thief, convulsed with rage, determines, as a revenge, to put out the lamp in the lighthouse. On the night that he has selected for his act. Harry and a crew of sailors are returning in their fishing smack across the bay. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There is insufficient material for two reels
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture would have held interest better had it been shorter. There is insufficient material for two reels. There is a serious oversight in the selection of fishing schooners. In the first scene in which the vessel appears it is a two-master, with two jibs. As the boat sails out of the harbor it has three masts and four jibs and a topsail. The homecoming is on a two-masted boat. There may be three-masted fishing schooners down Maine way. The writer never saw one. However, there is no complaint to be lodged against the dramatic work. It is good. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
