She gives a very beautiful character portrayal

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
23 July 2016

A country love story in very pretty backgrounds with some very pleasing comedy. It begins by making us acquainted with a pair of country lovers, and then shows us a little quarrel between two city lovers. The city man comes to the country and tries to flirt with the country girl, even making use of subterfuge to gain her sympathy. The country lad sees through him and shows him up, not crudely, but with a gentle irony that gets over to the spectators very effectively. It is a rare comedy, full of substance and true to human nature. Miss Florence Turner plays the country girl. The part gives her plenty of scope and everyone knows what her capabilities are. Simplicity, unaffected, quiet naturalness are the words that describe her work in this part. She gives a very beautiful character portrayal. She is very well supported, too. The scythe work of the country boy in the first scene would have made him a champion mower. The only noticeable weak point in the picture is in one or two of the backgrounds. The picture of the rocks would have been better for a bit more breathing room; it lacked atmosphere. The photographs are good. The picture held the audience closely and pleased them much. It is a substantial feature picture. As an excellent picture of Miss Turner's acting, it would pay to advertise and use it as an attraction. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
