Storyline

Vincent Strong, who is acknowledged to be the greatest living ship-designer, is terribly jealous of his reputation. He is considerably annoyed when his brother apprentices his son to him and asks him to make him as great as himself. Nonetheless he takes Carl into his office and gives him every opportunity to learn. Before long Vincent Strong realizes that Carl is determined to be as great a craftsman as himself, if not greater. He becomes uncontrollably jealous, the more so when he realizes that Janice Barnes, the daughter of the president of the S.S. Company, and with whom he is in love, prefers Carl to himself. So egotistic is he that he neglects his invalid wife, who dies while he is courting Janice at a dance. Carl sees Strong's design for a new ship which Barnes is building.

Gets well off of the beaten track
29 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A well-wrought two-reel number, with Harry Morey. Rose Tapley, Leo Delaney and Edith Storey in the principal parts. It shows the manner in which the young ship builder becomes a greater expert than his uncle. The character of both these men was brought out strongly. It seemed improbable that the boat would be launched after the Board had been advised of its defective construction, but the subsequent scenes were dramatic and convincing. Sarah H. Starr is the author of the story which gets well off of the beaten track, a strong point in its favor. - The Moving Picture World, November 8, 1913
