Storyline

His dumb grief was mistaken for indifference at his mother's death-bed, but it was the non-committal lady who learned the truth. The favorite son came to woo and win her. She made fine biscuits. In the end, as is quite apt to be the case, the lady gave up herself and her accomplishments in a way quite unexpected. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It seemed just a bit obscure in one or two places
16 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A solemn and affecting death scene opens this picture of a quarrel between two brothers who really loved each other. The value of the opening scene, which throws into strong light the emotional character of the brothers, especially of the older one, is felt at the end, where, by a fortunate chance, a terrible tragedy is averted by hardly more than a moment. The picture is not harrowing, for one feels after it is done that those two brothers must be the very closest of friends from that time on through their whole lives. The story was speedily produced, and perhaps was projected a bit too fast, at any rate, it seemed just a bit obscure in one or two places; yet even under these conditions it was very effective. In the characters we find that same respect for truth that we have come to expect in pictures from the Biograph studio. Both the brothers and that queer "non-committal girl" were clearly imagined and most certainly rung true. As for the girl, we know one who is in many ways like her, one of the queerest people we know, a truly country character. The "leaders" seem unusually poor to us. The use of the word "lady" instead of girl is a bit stilted, and we think that the screen explanations might have been made clearer. The photography is fair. A strong offering. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
