Storyline

With a preference for Frank Lewis, Mr. Grey, an old man who has a passion for collecting precious gems, disapproves of his niece's lover, Darrel Young. He is incensed at Dorothy's refusal to marry Lewis and threatens to disinherit her in his will. Dorkins, the butler, observes Mr. Grey's antipathy for Darrel Young and determines to take advantage of it in his purpose to rob his employer of his jewels. He sees the old man admiringly looking over his precious possessions as he casts greedy glances toward them. While Mr. Grey is thus engaged Darrel enters the library, and Grey puts the jewels in his desk. Darrel frankly asks Mr. Grey's consent to his marriage to Dorothy. The old man becomes very angry and threatens to strike Darrel, who defends himself by raising his hand as if to strike the old gentleman.

A good commercial picture with some freshness of interest
28 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodramatic love story in which the heroine's lover is overheard threatening to strike her father who has treated him with undeserved contempt. Later, we see the old man murdered by his butler in the dark so that we can't see the weapon. The lover is accused of the deed, but in an unexpected manner the knife is discovered. The photography, the sets and the acting are almost perfect for such a story and the offering held the audience's attention strongly. Mildred Garrison, the authoress, has made a good commercial picture with some freshness of interest and her script has been clearly produced by Maurice Costello, who also plays the leading role. Rosemary Theby is convincingly romantic as the girl. Harry Northrup plays the butler rather heavily. Charles Eldridge plays the rather foolish old man with his usual intelligence. Edith Halleren and Joseph Baker are also in the cast. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
