Wholly conventional in characters
15 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Emmett C. Hall, the author of this picture, took a situation that has been used before and has made a very melodramatic offering of it, wholly conventional in characters, situations and general business. It has been produced by Arthur Johnson and we enjoyed it all the way through, because of its lovely photography, its pretty sets and the work of its competent players: Lottie Briscoe, Florence Hackett, Howard Mitchell and the producer. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
