Here is a love well-proved and worthwhile
23 March 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An emotional drama of extraordinary power is presented on this film. Its single noticeable defect is in its photography and it is a pity that a picture so well conducted and so effectively acted should be so wanting in pictorial quality, should be so flat. The plot isn't new. Two men working in the same bank love the same girl. The successful one becomes a defaulter and the unsuccessful one shields him because of his wife and child, taking the blame on himself. The defaulter knows the real reason for this act and. as a perfect punishment, it preys on his mind till he goes insane from jealousy and remorse and shoots himself. The innocent man is released and in the end marries the widow. We have seen something of this before, but not so completely nor so effectively. There is nothing in the picture that is not effective except perhaps the very first picture of a college room. The acting of all the play's characters is very remarkable but the scene where the defaulter confesses, the scene in the president's room immediately after, when the hero accuses himself, and the scene where the defaulter hands a confession to his wife that seems half an accusation of her, and then half-mad kills himself stand out clearly. They are wonderful. The effect of the last scenes softens the tragedy and leaves the impression that here is a love well-proved and worthwhile. - The Moving Picture World, August 5, 1911
