Storyline

They rapidly become intimate, leading to an invitation to the blind girl to accompany the rich child on her summer visit to the country.

Of heart interest in this story there is much, at times too much
11 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Splendid drama. Nina Rhoades is the author; she has builded well; and she has been especially fortunate in the assignments to the various characters. Of heart interest in this story there is much, at times too much for outward physical comfort. One could hardly wish for a stronger dramatic situation than that where Marc McDermott, as Mr. Hinsdale, takes into his home Edna Hammel, portraying Joy, the blind girl, and there discovers that it is his own granddaughter. In the awakening of the great public's heart to the afflictions of humanity's less fortunate ones the Edison Company is doing an incalculable service. The others in the cast of this drama, all of whom are deserving of mention, are Gertrude McCoy, Leonie Flugrath, Elizabeth Miller and Augustus Phillips. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
