Storyline

Agnes and Adele are sisters. Agnes being a girl of 23, inclined to walk the rugged and narrow path, but Adele being in the teens, has a tendency of traveling the broad and flowery one. Agnes loves, with a pure and innocent love, Sidney, a young man of good appearance, but not an over-abundance of good within him. One night in the club Sidney has a quarrel over cards with McWeeny, a human vulture, who threatens to get even for an insult. Later, when Agnes is out one day with Sidney, he meets Dick, a good friend, on the street. Sidney introduces Agnes to him and after some little talk they pass on. One day Adele comes home with a beautiful silk dress and a new hat and Agnes, being surprised, asks where she got them, realizing that her income would not warrant purchasing such expensive clothes, but Adele refuses to tell.

An absorbingly interesting story
9 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A first-class two-part offering with an absorbingly interesting story, chiefly of two sisters, one of whom nearly goes wrong; but is saved in a dramatic way by the courage of "big sister." Few pictures we see are more significant or carefully logical in developing their story than is this, except perhaps at the end, which seemed weak after what had gone before. Jane Gail and Violet Mersereau play the sisters, stenographers in the same office. The former, big sister, is loved by the chief clerk (Matt Moore) but Violet is attracted by the money of the dissolute junior partner. There are many good and naturally developed contrasts; many human moments full of meaning, which often seem added by the players through imaginative understanding of the characters they portray. It is a worthwhile offering and exhibitors can, we think, depend upon it. It is clearly photographed. The producer is George Tucker. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
