Fathers who try to force their children to marry against their wills are more common in pictures
9 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

A romantic melodrama set in a California orange ranch and with early scenes in Russia. The heroine is a pretty orange sorter; she is a granddaughter of the Romanoffs; but is a countess not a serene highness as one would expect any scion of that name to be. The owner's son falls in love with her and the father is much displeased. Fathers who try to force their children to marry against their wills are more common in pictures than in life. The situation is worked out satisfactorily and gives some pretty scenes. It is well photographed and makes an interesting, not a powerful picture. - The Moving Picture World, July 6, 1912
