Storyline

Jennie, a poor girl, and Mrs. Manning, her blind mother, are ignored by the people in the village in which they live, and the mother and daughter are reduced to abject poverty. The girl tries to get food on credit, but is refused. The new minister, who has just arrived in town, tries to help the girl by giving her money, but being proud, she refuses it. After two futile attempts, the minister drops a five-dollar bill purposely where the girl will find it. The girl finds the money and buys food with the rest of the money after the settlement of her bill. The interest heightens when the landlord loses a five-dollar bill near Mrs. Manning's home while calling for rent. The poor girl is arrested for stealing money. She, however, is rescued from the village jail by the minister and his sister. They take Jennie to her home, where the money belonging to the landlord is found by Billy, the town half-wit, who has befriended the girl, and who accompanies her home with the minister and sister. ...

It is a very thin, old-fashioned picture
16 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A melodrama featuring Ormi Hawley, who plays an innocent heroine accused of theft and put behind prison bars. It is a very thin, old- fashioned picture and isn't deeply interesting. Guy D'Ennery plays the minister who left a $5 note where the poor but proud girl or her blind mother would find it. James Moore plays the deacon who drops a note and then accuses the girl of stealing it. Clarence Elmer (a young man with some personality) plays the half-wit who finds the deacon's note after the girl has been arrested and bailed out by the minister. Mary Smith and Jane Gale have parts. The photography is good. Walter Starkey wrote the script, which Lloyd Carlton produced. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
