Holds the audience in a spell while it lasts
10 October 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The story of a difficulty between a husband and wife which involved the turning of the mother out of doors. When the child found her afterward the father permitted her to choose and she went with the mother. But this led to a reconciliation in which all the differences and difficulties of the parents, including the wife's brother, who had caused all the trouble, were patched up. The dramatic point is when the child is deciding between the two. The rest is narrative, but there is a situation which holds the audience in a spell while it lasts. The second climax comes when the wife's brother enters the husband's house through a window, removes his disguise and the two men confront each other. A thrill goes with this view and when the husband decides to take back the wife and not interfere with the brother there is an evident sense of coinciding with his decision. The play is well acted and the photographer has done his part well. - The Moving Picture World, December 24, 1910
