It is a homely melodrama
21 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

A two part offering tiiat will go strong in villages, but will be liked in cities, too, especially with the simpler audiences. It is a homely melodrama with overdrawn virtue and villainy, with its hands clean and yet with its pretentions of handling deep and terrible things in city life so as to get a contrast for idyllic love in the country. These simple melodramas, what dear, delightful, wholesome frauds they are; quite impossible and yet the dream of the simple-hearted majority seems to be in tune with them still. This one features Anna Nilsson as an actress who has been on the stage, has killed a villain and stood trial and been acquitted. She is fleeing from the city, but gets sick on the train and is left in kindly hands to be nursed back to health in a farmhouse where there is a sturdy young man. It is gracefully acted, is pretty and sweet. - The Moving Picture World, January 31, 1914
