A wholesome human picture
deickemeyer18 March 2017
A story of Ireland and America. Wild Pat is a hard drunkard at home, but the village priest induces him to go to America and brace up. He makes good in America, but is killed in averting a boiler explosion nearly caused by the carelessness of his drunken associates. The priest has to tell the wife and comfort her. Arthur Bently, the author, has provided a wholesome human picture, which has been skillfully produced by Charles Kent. The acting is commendable. Rose Tapley, as the wife, has the only role that requires highly emotional playing. Her characterization is intelligent, but has its limitations. Harry T. Nearey's part, Pat, is clearly drawn, as is the village priest, by Tefft Johnson. - The Moving Picture World, December 7, 1912
