Storyline

Sim Sloane and his beloved son were the reprobates of the village, not what would be called lovers of peace and kindness. But granddad dwelt in a house filled more with love, and when Sim came in for his brutal sport, he soon went out assisted by granddad. Incited by ridicule and drink, Sim swore to get even. That was where granddad's new supply of powder came in. Sim appropriated it and although he wrecked the house of love, he destroyed through his venom the only thing he cherished in life.

Easily the best offering of to-day's regular releases
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This picture is easily the best offering of to-day's regular releases on account of its tremendously effective climax. We see a half-witted, sodden drunkard set a long fuse of shavings to a large keg of powder in the log cabin of a man who had once befriended him and to which immediately after, two little girls come home from school. But the son of the drunkard is hungry and also comes to the cabin for food, scaring away the children. In a moment, there is a terrible explosion; the cabin is knocked to pieces, but it is the son and not the children who dies. If such an explosion can be made more effective and real, it may be done in some later picture; but we think this will stand for a while. The photography is clear. Alfred Paget is the drunkard; Robert Harron, his son, and Lionel Barrymore, his friend. On the other side, W.J. Butler is the father of the children, played by Mae Marsh and a little girl. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
