A drama which holds all the way
11 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

Mr. Sturgeon, the Western director of the Vitagraph, has written and produced a drama which holds all the way. Miss Mary Charleson is doing fine work in all the parts for which she is cast, and this play is no exception. Robert Burns has the role of the lawyer who shuts up the only saloon in town at the behest of his client, Nellie Wilson, because the owner would insist on selling liquor to her father. George C. Stanley is convincing as the saloon keeper. As a practical temperance lesson the picture takes high rank, and in this respect it may be said there are many attempts to do this very same thing, but which fall far short of accomplishing it. Churches looking for a virile story will find it right here. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
