A beautiful offering
30 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful offering showing how the jealousy of a chill old New England mother can be warmed by the advent of a little child. Mrs. Mary Maurice portrays the mother in her usual graceful manner. Clara Kimball Young and William Humphrey as the young couple ably assist her. - The Moving Picture World, May 9, 1914
