Storyline

Kid Hogan is a claimant for the light weight championship. His sweetheart, Nell Simpson, a factory girl, begs him to give up the fight game and settle down to some steady business, but Hogan indignantly refuses and continues in his way. He has a big fight on hand and wins out with "200 Bucks." Full of pride he bursts into Nell's room to find her weeping over the body of her mother, which lays dead upon the bed. The situation is too strained and the poor girl, in a towering rage, orders Hogan from the house. The next day he got drunk and kept it up as long as the $200 lasted. One night he mixed in the crowd listening to the Salvation Army. His bleary eyes could scarcely recognize the faces in the semi-darkness, but one girl impressed him and he pleaded for help. It was his old sweetheart, now Captain Nell Simpson. She took him in hand and soon brought about the reformation of Kid Hogan. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Stock properties for producing pathos
25 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A reviewer, who sees nearly every picture that is made, sees very often situations that might be called stock properties for producing pathos. They don't affect him any more, but he remembers the time when they did. This picture has very little in it that is new; to the reviewer it was slow; but the people around him watched it closely, following the fortunes of the "Kid" downward from the estate of a successful prize fighter to the street. The girl he liked had dismissed him and he was neglecting his old mother. The girl became a Salvation Army lassie and she found him again, and converted him. To a man who knows street life, it doesn't powerfully convince. Miss Ormi Hawley is the lassie and Mr. Jack Holliday is the "Kid." The photographs are good. It is a fair filler. - The Moving Picture World, April 20, 1912
