It happens that Crane has just finished the drawing of his latest invention. There is only one drawing which he and his secretary have just been looking over and the secretary is advising him to have a second one made when Black is announced.

The climax is strong and splendidly done
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An excellent picture. Bannister Merwin writes the scenario, and Walter Edwin produces it. George Lessey, as a well-to-do widower, has the lead. Mabel Trunnelle plays the role of governess to the two children of the widower. William West is the dishonest promoter, the father of the governess. The work falls to these three. The climax is strong and splendidly done. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
