It is worked out according to convention
1 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture that gives entertainment by its dignified conduct, including acting, staging and photography, rather than by its story, which is not without its value, though not strong. It exploits an old situation, in which a young adventuress falls in love with the son of the old man she has married, and it is worked out according to convention till the last scene or two in which the woman (a desperate adventuress with a good character) sacrifices herself to straighten the trouble she has caused. It reflects credit on its authoress, Leah Baird, as a human being; while her acting in the leading role reflects credit on her as an artist. Charles Kent and Courtenay Foote ably support her. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
