Storyline

Rosie Lee, the shabby, wan-faced daughter of "Daddy" Lee, a humble laboring man, becomes engaged to Jerry Brooks.

A breath of life from the great world of living people
16 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

There is one character in this picture that will attract notice. It is a clearly drawn young working man played by Jack Nelson, and though not a very engaging character, looked at as an acquaintance, he brings into the picture a breath of life from the great world of living people who are as God made them. Not all the characters of the story, which was written by J.E. Hungerford and produced by Oscar Eagle, are as real or natural, but all are fair. The waiter seems to have tried to heighten his story's dramatic quality by increasing our pity for the heroine's poor family, around which the story turns. This wasn't necessary and the result is not wholly fortunate. Baskets of fruit and bread carried in charity are also theatrical; it is an aristocratic and snobbish thing to do. likely to give offense to the poor family. As far as we can find out the spectators don't especially commend such baskets in pictures. Winnifred Greenwood plays the girl, with Frank Weed as her father, a rather healthy looking sick man, and "Timmy" Sheehan as her lame brother. Charles Clary plays the charitable floor walker who has excited Jack's jealousy and who, with his wife and child, visits the poor family with the basket. The photography is excellent. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
