It is not convincing as probable life
3 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There is little that is new in this story and it is not convincing as probable life. It has been acted with dignity and grace and perfectly photographed. As an offering, it stands on its scenes, not on its unbelievable story. Alice Joyce plays the actress who tries to give back her lover (Tom Moore) to the other girl, in whom she has found an old benefactress. - The Moving Picture World, May 17, 1913
