Its object is to contrast the hearts of two sisters
3 December 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A dramatic love story presenting G.M. Anderson, supported by Miss Bertram and others of the Essanay Western company. The plot is complicated, but never is anything but clear and sustains the interest from the start. Its object is to contrast the hearts of two sisters; one strong, lively and a bit frivolous; the other a cripple. The hero thinks he loves the first; but gets into trouble and finds that she is shallow and that the other, who deeply loves him, is true. The characters are the usual ranch folk; but are extremely well acted so that the portrayal has much humanity and truth. The scenes are well chosen, little glimpses of rooms, a country grocery and a few out-door sketches. The camera work is commendable. - The Moving Picture World, June 29, 1912
