Storyline

Rosalind, a beautiful gypsy girl, is being halted by the town rowdies, and in trying to escape falls and injures her arm. Dick Waite, appearing upon the scene, thrashes the girl's tormentors and takes her home to his mother, where she is tenderly cared for. Dick falls in love with Rosalind and she marries him, his aged parents approving of their new daughter-in-law. Some time later Dick, dabbling in chemistry, loses his sight by an explosion. Rosalind's wonderful voice has caused widespread comment, and she is visited by an operatic impresario, who develops her talents and presents her to the public. She makes an instantaneous hit, and is soon besieged by admirers. Her triumph in the metropolis and the wealth and luxury of her surroundings work a revulsion of feeling against her simple-hearted, stricken husband and his humble home, and listening to the fervid wooing of a wealthy young man, she decides to divorce Dick, and writes him to this effect.

It is hard to conceive of any improvements in the acting
8 December 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The story of a Gypsy girl befriended by a young man who afterward marries her, and she deserts him when he is blinded by an explosion and she has gained triumphs in music. Too late remorse affects her and she returns only to find him dead of a broken heart. The picture closes with her sobbing at his feet. This is an intensely emotional picture, developing several interesting phases of character which are admirably reproduced. The part taken by Miss Marion Leonard gives her opportunity to display to advantage her emotional acting, always of a high order and never better than in this film. Indeed, it would be hard to suggest any improvement in this direction. While Miss Leonard's part is the principal one, the others do well and are careful in their work. In fact, it is hard to conceive of any improvements in the acting. The photography is not quite clear in some of the scenes, or to be more accurate, in the parts of some scenes, but this is due to under-exposure, probably, and maybe might be remedied in the printing. It is not sufficient to cause any serious distraction, but the film is so near perfection otherwise that it shows more prominently than it otherwise would. The picture is excellent of its type, and the producer is to be congratulated upon its success. - The Moving Picture World, March 18, 1911
