Fear of a disease
3 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The idea behind this interesting drama is that fear of a disease is liable to produce its symptoms in the one who is too much afraid of it. A Christian Science practitioner appears as one of the characters. Lois Weber plays this part. Rupert Julian plays the part of an ordinary practitioner. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
