It is told very clearly and smoothly
14 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A perfectly planned melodrama that is hardly very new, yet that decidedly "got hold" of several in the audience; it made 'em holler. One will find in it the Biograph earnestness; there is, for instance, a good stiff scrap at the end that seems quite like the real thing. It uses the situation of the girl alone in the house trying to save some money from a gang of tramps. Her lover is the telegraph operator at the little railroad station, and she flashes a message across the fields in the Morse code to him with a mirror. He brings railroaders to the rescue and we have the scrap. It is told very clearly and smoothly so that it "gets over" and makes the audience sit up to follow it, in many cases breathlessly. Claire McDowell plays the girl; Henry Walthall, the operator; Lionel Barrymore, the girl's father, and Harry Cary, the first tramp. The photography is serviceable. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
