Herbert Rawlinson deserves special commendation
10 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A pathetic story of war times by Emmet C. Hall and produced by Lem B. Parker. The hero's memory is temporarily lost after a wound in the head in a battle, and when he is released from the Union prison he doesn't know who he is. His case is quite possible and very sad. He wanders through the South as a tinker and it is not till 1891 that a second knock on the head gives him back his identity and he finds his long- lost sweetheart. It might have been more carefully written and more dramatically worked up; but will go as it is. Herbert Rawlinson, in the leading role, deserves special commendation for his character work and for the stages through which he carries the poor soldier. Eugenie Besserer, in the role opposite to him, also shows the passing years skillful]y. The photography is only fair. - The Moving Picture World, June 7, 1913
