Storyline

Dunbar Crane is an artist who believes that he has a touch of genius in his work, but it has never been recognized. He is also a firm believer in the fact that no man is great until he is dead. He decides to test the theory by leaving the impression that he has committed suicide. When it has become known that Dunbar Crane is dead, Crane masquerades as his own father. He offers his own paintings for sale and finds that there is a demand for them at fabulous prices. When the lot is depleted Crane finds himself the proud possessor of a considerable fortune and a reputation in art circles, and these he shares with the little girl who has been his only friend in time of stress.

The picture tells an interesting story
27 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The best point of the picture is that the spectator is also taken in by the trick of the artist, who leaves suicide letters and then comes back as his old father to sell his paintings for fabulous sums. Wilbur Crane plays the artist, and then the father, so cleverly that he deceives one into thinking he is, in the second role, a different person. The picture tells an interesting story and seemed to please the audience. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
