Storyline

John Dale sacrificed his good name, his liberty and the girl he loved to save his younger brother Philip from disgrace. Philip, not man enough to refuse the noble sacrifice, married Ruth Cranston the girl his brother had loved, and became a wealthy and respectable citizen during the five years John was in state prison. John released from jail, assumed the name of Gaston and plunging into the Maine woods began his life anew. With illusions, faith, love, everything, shattered and ruined, the friendship which he formed with Joyce Birkdale was far removed from anything approaching the sentimental. His feeling for her was rather that of a father than a lover. He worshiped her glowing youth and innocence with the same abstraction of motive with which he worshiped the spring winds or the rising sun.

At no time does it rise much out of the ordinary
8 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This two reel drama is from the novel by Harriet T. McComstock. At no time does it rise much out of the ordinary. The first reel is valuable chiefly in establishing interest in what is to follow in the second. There is a strong scene when the wife, driven from home, seeks refuge in the home of the man who on account of his prison record had allowed Joyce to slip from him. The two are alone in the house. The ex-convict resolves the problem by departing and leaving his home to Joyce. There is a distinct punch when Joyce, after discovering the body of her dissipated husband in the woods, is joined by the man she has always loved and learns that he has likewise loved her. Mary Fuller plays Joyce and plays it well. Augustus Phillips has the role of the man who, does time to shield an erring brother. There is a large cast and a good one. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
