A none-too-original story
31 March 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A none-too-original story of a foster father who hides his wealth at the bottom of an abandoned well. The son, going into the well to steal the money, finds the little girl has fallen inside. He overcomes his desire for the money and takes the child home. His foster father then gives him money on which to marry. Well pictured, but not very strong as to plot. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
