It will make a good offering in the holiday season
A naturally presented picture of sentiment, with Christmas atmosphere. It will make a good offering in the holiday season. The name describes it only in a roundabout way and doesn't seem fortunate. The story's hero, a reformer in politics, has been accused and convicted of "padding the registration lists," but on procured evidence and on a frame-up, made by the ring leader's heeler, William Russell. He is sent to prison and the story works out to his coming home, a cleared and rehabilitated man, on Christmas Eve. In a convincing way, the heeler's conscience has been touched and he shows up his former ring leader in order to set free the innocent man. Marguerite Snow and the Thanhouser Kidlet play the family to whom the father comes home on Christmas. There are many good scenes, some showing the politicians at work, one or two in a big department store and, scattered through the picture, some very lovely ones, showing the reformer's home life. It is a picture that will be liked, for it is well acted throughout and beautifully photographed. - The Moving Picture World, December 28, 1912
