Smooth acting and photography
17 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The beautiful ballroom scenes at the beginning of the film make a strong appeal to the observer and a story worthy of the setting soon develops. The wife and husband separate because of her plans to elope with another. Years later the daughter suffers also from her father's coldness of heart. The reconciliation was pleasingly handled. The logical development of this story and the smooth acting and photography make the film a desirable one. - The Moving Picture World, December 27, 1913
