Storyline

'Arriet Rogers, the daughter of a retired costermonger, Tom Rogers, has two very ardent suitors, Bill Larkin and Bob 'Armon. Bill is a sailor at the London docks and is a very steady young fellow. Bob, on the other hand, is not nearly so steady, but makes a lot of money betting on horses. In this way, by helping him rake in several good pots. Bob curries favor with old man Rogers, who promises him that he shall wed his daughter, 'Arriet.

This writer has never seen Miss Talmadge in such serious work
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

An unusually strong drama of humble life, with the veterans Shea, Gaillord and Delaney in the leading roles, with, also, Miss Norma Talmadge as 'Arriet. This writer has never seen Miss Talmadge in such serious work, but she acquitted herself with distinction. Of the three men, it need only be said they give of their best. Thero are moments of real pathos, one of these marking the return of the sailor and his meeting with 'Arriet. Another is the death of 'Arriet, in which, by the way, the sometimes painful features are noticeable for their absence. There is a baby, too, which, as the mother is dying, almost knowingly strokes the face of the sailorman who is to be its future protector. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
