It loses most from lack of art in the acting
8 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

The story told by this picture is not made very convincing and does not escape a certain professional atmosphere. In the tale itself, by B.M. Harvey, there is nothing unbelievable and it loses most from lack of art in the acting. All the players caught their roles perfectly at moments, but, except Ernestine Morley, all showed occasional weakness, enough to keep the offering from being emotional. Its story interested the audience. Ernestine Morley plays the older, Isabel Lemon, the young sister; Edwin Carewe. the lover, and Bernard Seigel, the father. It was produced by George Nicholls. The photography is very good. The backgrounds are almost wintry, while the players are dressed in summer clothes. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
