Storyline

After all, the young chemist proves himself quite human. He would have ended his life because he had not the money to spend on his desired research for a cancer cure, had not his uncle prevented. The old man became a thief "for science, not personal gain." The young man, however, fell in love with the very girl who was sent to track him, and thus forgot his original intention.

Miss McDowell can act strongly
19 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The story told by this picture is weak both in the sentimentality of its ethics and in the lack of convincing humanity in its action. There are two or three vigorously acted scenes in it, due mostly to the work of Claire McDowell, the lady detective. A poor chemist is about to shoot himself because he lacks the money to go on with his investigations, so his uncle, a butler, steals from his employers to finance him, "for science, not for personal gain," yet the youth is now so prosperous that the detective who sees him on the street is made suspicious. That shows the quality of it all. It permits us to point out that Miss McDowell can act strongly even when the situation is ridiculous, which is a pretty good comment on her powers. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
