Not the strongest way of making the situation powerful
24 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A rather heavyhearted tragedy dealing with fisher folk. It has three chief roles, a father, his son and a girl who is washed up from a wreck, a sole survivor. The working out of the triangle in this case brings all three to their deaths by drowning. The acting is competent, although the cameraman seemed to be a bit off the best speed in taking the scene in which the older man accuses the girl whom he has now married, of loving the son. The letter she writes is convincing, but the son's tearing of it to deceive the father, and the ease with which this is accomplished, are not strongly so. In drama, the deaths of all concerned is not the strongest way of making the situation powerful, as it really denies emotion. We are not left very deeply interested in these three people. - The Moving Picture World, July 19, 1913
