It is not a vital or human picture
26 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of love and needless jealousy, told in backgrounds of beautiful mountains and woodlands, and with some rough comedy that lightens a story that is filled with tragic possibilities. The rougher part of the audience laughed at a very lively hair-pulling match between the engineer's sweetheart and Miss Edythe, a visitor to the mountains. Edythe's lover is thrown over a cliff by the jealous engineer. He falls many feet, but by a miracle is not killed and lives to frighten the engineer, who thinks he sees a ghost. It is not a vital or human picture; but it isn't slow. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
