There is practically not a new thing in it
21 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This story is hackneyed; there is practically not a new thing in it. A son marries against his father's wish and is disowned. Later, when there is a child, the son loses his job. The child is ill; the doctor says he must be taken away. The son enters his father's home at night. He sees the father go to the safe and take out a box. As he is about to attack his parent he discovers that in the box are a lot of toys. Relenting, he is overheard as he goes out. There is a reconciliation. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
