Commendable as a sternly moral picture
4 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The mother and the father of the little boy and girl can't agree. The father decides to leave his wife. He writes a note, places it where she can find it, and carries the boy away with him. The boy is left with friends while the father goes away to Australian gold fields. The mother gets a divorce and marries again. Years pass; the father is not heard from. The girl. Hazel, has taken her stepfather's name and the boy, Jack, has been adopted by the Browns. Jack and Hazel are visiting the beach together, but have not met. Jack saves her from the undertow and they fall in love. The day of the wedding Jack's father returns. He claims the boy as his son. Hazel's mother recognizes him as her husband. Hazel and Jack, who have just been married, are brother and sister. The situation is terrible. It is powerfully interpreted and commendable as a sternly moral picture. - The Moving Picture World, October 28, 1911
