Storyline

Jim and Helen are lovers and until the small fortune of Helen and her family are swept away, the future seems roseate for the happy couple. Helen now refuses to accept Jim's proposal of marriage, and obtains employment on the stage. Fifteen years later. Jim's little sister, now grown to young womanhood, follows in the footsteps of her brother's sweetheart. By an odd coincidence they are employed in the same company. Not until Helen shields the girl from the insults of the stage manager, which results in their both being discharged, does she learn that Leone is Jim's sister. Leone then persuades Helen to return home with her where she meets Jim and consents to be his wife. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Perhaps it is better not to show such scenes
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture of sentiment, contrasting the quiet home life with the trials and vicissitudes of those whose business is to act upon the stage. Jim's sweetheart left Springfield to go upon the stage. Fifteen years pass and she has become but a photograph and a fond memory. Jim's sister Leone, now grown up, also hears the call of ambition and the footlights and she too goes to New York. She is shown as having a very unpleasant experience. Jim's old sweetheart, who, it happens, is also in the company, saves her from the clutches of a crafty manager. Perhaps it is better not to show such scenes. As a consequence, both actresses are discharged and this leads to a homecoming with a renewal of old ties and affections. The acting is poor. - The Moving Picture World, January 13, 1912
