Storyline

Mary Keene did not realize that when placed in the office of John Ingalls to assist in carrying out Robert Moran's plot to secure Ingalls' money she would spoil the whole scheme of things by falling in love with her big-hearted employer. Mary had always been "straight" in spite of her association with Moran and his band of blackmailers. But she had erred against man-made laws, though innocently, and fearing disgrace and prison if exposed by Moran she was compelled to assist in his nefarious schemes. Moran discovered that Ingalls loved children, and that he lived a secluded, lonely life.

Alma Hanlon is given her first opportunity to shine
17 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Alma Hanlon, of sweet and engaging personality, an ingénue capable of high emotional interpretation, is given her first opportunity to shine under the direction of Richard Ridgley in "God of Little Children." Born and brought up in a dramatic environment, a child of the stage, she is without theatricalism. With the native grace of an ingénue, she reveals almost unconsciously capabilities far beyond that colorless role. Very simply, without ostentation, she gives an almost constant view of what is passing in the mind and heart of the character she represents, and this is the true art of motion picture interpretation. Harry R. Raver of the Apollo Company is to be congratulated on a veritable find. With a strong support, under capable handling, in a good story, Miss Hanlon's acting clearly indicates that she is to be a fixed star. The Moving Picture World, January 27, 1917
