There is not very much in it that is fresh
30 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A very romantic picture well-acted partly, and prettily set. The situation is developed not without dramatic effectiveness, yet there is not very much in it that is fresh and this keeps one from being very deeply interested. The heroine of the picture was married in a veil. She was very beautiful and her father feared that the artist, her sweetheart, loved her only for her beauty. He was a chemist and so contrived it that the artist supposed her burned in an explosion, and scarred for life. At first he is willing to break the engagement, yet later decides that he cannot live without her. She insists on being married in a veil. The artist doesn't know that she is still beautiful until after the ceremony. Some of the photographs are full of merit pictorially. - The Moving Picture World, December 9, 1911
