It is an unusually good drama
27 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a strong picture with many of the best Biograph characteristics. The underlying theme is the taste for strong drink. Claire McDowell has the part of a neglected wife; Hector Dion, of the man who is a slave to liquor; Kate Bruce is Salvation Anne, the good angel of the family; Elmer Booth is a burglar, who leads astray the weak husband; Matt Snyder is the householder who employs the wife when her husband deserts her. An effective scene is the view of the burglar at work on the house safe; he is shown in the rays of a flash lamp with his ear at the lock listening for the fall of the tumblers. There are tense moments following the call of the householder for the police. It is an unusually good drama, finely constructed and splendidly acted. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
