Considerably depressing in places
13 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

The plot worked out in this offering is rather original in conception. The leading characters are convincing in the portrayal of their roles, especially Harry Carey, as the farm foreman, and Miss McDowell as the daughter, Kate Bruce as the mother and the person who played the boy hated by the foreman; all did fine work. The photography was up to the Biograph standard and the locations well chosen. It is a picture that will please and hold attention, although it is considerably depressing in places. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
