The production is first rate
6 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Lois Weber, ably assisted by an excellent cast, plays the title role in this very commendable drama, produced by the Smalleys. The story tells of a young girl who, at her parents' urging, makes a marriage of convenience, leaving in the lurch thereby a very much disappointed lover who promises her to commit suicide and she, believing that he has committed this rash act, almost goes mad before she discovers that he has done anything but take his life by falling in love with another girl. The production is first rate. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
