The picture doesn't really get hold of the core of it
3 April 2016 | by See all my reviews

The mother was blind, one of her sons was a clergyman and the other, a younger man, was impulsive and not yet grown into his character. Both love the same girl, a neighbor, and the younger man elopes with her and then deserts her. This is a dignified situation, one that handled by a skillful novelist or dramatist would make a great book or drama. One feels that the picture (effective as it is) doesn't really get hold of the core of it. The situation is pictured fairly clearly, but something of the resultant emotion is lost due to its not being absolutely clear. However, as much as we get of it, we are thankful for, and it makes an acceptable picture. The clergyman is played by Arthur Johnson, the girl by Florence Lawrence, and the younger brother by Albert McGovern. The scene where the younger brother abandons his wife is pictured by both well. The scene where the younger brother tells the clergyman that he has tired of his wife and left her is made significant by Johnson. A small boy has an important part in the scenes of the reconciliation after the wife has come back to the village with her baby. It would have been better if this boy had been given a place in the picture before he was actually needed, his presence would have been taken more as a matter of course. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
