A simple story of heart interest
10 November 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a one-reel production of which the American Film Co. may be proud. In it Vivian Rich gives evidence at last that she is able to act. We do not know who made the production, but whoever did make it knows something about the making of a moving picture. It is based on a simple story of heart interest, and Vivian Rich plays the part of the unsophisticated daughter of a woodman. David Lythgoe plays opposite her, and others of the cast are Harry Von Meter, Louis Lester and K. Morrison. - The Moving Picture World, April 3, 1915
