The action and staging are both good
24 August 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A Vitagraph subject which represents a father and son coming almost to blows over a girl to whom the young man is paying attention and the father turns him outdoors. The young man goes to see the girl and she turns him out, confirming what the father said that she was only amusing herself. The young man starts back home, but decides to enlist for the Philippines. He is killed in a battle and the father is apprised of his death through the papers. Later he is asked to go to a motion picture show in which the last battle the young man was in is depicted and the father sees him write out his forgiveness just before he falls. The action and staging are both good and the reproduction of a motion picture in a motion picture is so good that it seems like the original. - The Moving Picture World, April 24, 1909
