It is a very commendable film
26 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Two old spinster ladies, much reduced in circumstances, but treasuring some beautiful antique furniture, are shown, when this picture opens, as at last compelled to part with some of it, but their hearts are almost broken. The treasure that they find by means of a dramatically pictured dream, was buried by a Revolutionary ancestor years before and its discovery saves them from the necessity of parting with their furniture. The picture's most noticeable defect is that the outside of the house seems but a one-storied shanty, while the inside scenes have the sumptuous proportions of an old Colonial homestead. The most notable quality in the picture is the art with which the grouping and photography were done. The final scene is a very pretty picture. It is a very commendable film. - The Moving Picture World, August 12, 1911
