Storyline

There is a gentle pathos about the picture
16 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

A pretty story of rose petals and their influence upon a girl's life. In babyhood, in young womanhood, when temptations beset, the shower of rose petals is used with good effect. She not only breaks away from evil companions because of a shower of rose petals, but it changes a young man's life. There is a gentle pathos about the picture which appeals strongly to one's emotions, and as the scenes succeed each other similar occurrences come before one and add interest to the film. It is one of those simple domestic pictures, representing the triumph of virtue in a difficult situation. Such pictures always please, and this, acted with the ability usually displayed by the Vitagraph players, is rather better than the common lot. - The Moving Picture World, September 10, 1910
