Storyline

A romantic young girl, visiting St. Augustine, finds that she must make the choice which means happiness or misery for life. She has two suitors, one an everyday young American who has made his way in the world and is proud of it. He has money, will have more, and in every way would seem desirable. But the other man had ancestors! True, he didn't apparently have much else except a fondness for cigarettes, but he could talk for hours of those knightly days and dazed knights. He had a wonderful ring which had been given to his great-great and a few more great grandfathers, who, as governor of St. Augustine had saved the fort and been rewarded with a ring from the fair hand of the Queen of Spain. He offered her the ring and asked her to marry him. She said yes, and took the ring. It was so romantic.

It is acted with the usual Thanhouser grace
19 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Many of the scenes of this picture were taken in the old fortress at St. Augustine, in Florida. The girl (Miss Snow) is shown an old Spanish ring and is told the story of it. That afternoon, near the fountain at the hotel, she falls asleep and dreams what most likely was the truth of this story. The lover who told the story had boasted of his ancestors; she finds him in her dream of years ago as the fortress's cook. Her other lover is the real brave soldier. A romantic love story follows. It it played in costume in the old stone fort where it is very well set and effective. It is acted with the usual Thanhouser grace. Miss Marguerite Snow, Miss Florence LaBadie, Mr. Cruze, Mr. Russel and others, whose names we do not know, appear. Many of the scenes are very pretty pictures. It is also pleasantly amusing. The camera work is very good. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
