Storyline

Jimmy, a newsboy, is the sole support of his mother and crippled sister, Mary. His mother reads of the arrival in the city of Dr. Lobel, a noted European surgeon, and his offer to treat a number of patients at a free clinic. She and Jimmy see in this the chance of a lifetime to have Mary cured. Mary is taken to the hospital and while Jimmy is holding her place in the line of waiting patients, the surgeon announces that he will not have time to treat more patients as he has to leave at once to catch the steamship to return to Paris. Jimmy, deeply disappointed, pleads with the surgeon. Dr. Lobel telephones the officials of the steamship and persuades them to hold the vessel for a half hour. After the operation the doctor rushes to the pier in time to see the vessel steaming down the bay, but the captain of a tugboat near at hand loads the party into his boat and succeeds in overtaking the steamship.

Has a strong human touch
2 March 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A strong, sympathetic boy story, produced by Ince and Spencer. Jimmy, the young newsboy, has a sister suffering from hip disease. The way in which the youth holds up the visiting surgeon, so that he almost misses his steamer, in order to treat the girl, makes a picture narrative of strong appeal. The action in the second reel, showing the great surgeon at work on his patients, could hardly be improved upon. This works up fine suspense and has a strong human touch. A strong offering. - The Moving Picture World, October 10, 1914
