It is not as good as many pictures Lubin releases
26 April 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Here is a film which tells the story of a man accepting the blame for a large shortage and disappearing while the guilty one lives on unknown Later the assumption of guilt arises to prevent the young man marrying the girl of his choice. However, the real guilty one, the young man's stepfather, is informed of the situation and takes the blame upon himself. There is an exciting rush to the church which is reached just in time to prevent the girl saying the word. Explanations follow and the young man takes the place of the expectant groom. It is a good story and much interest is aroused when they are trying to straighten out the difficulty the young man is in. But it is not as good as many pictures Lubin releases. - The Moving Picture World, October 21, 1911
