Storyline

Mason and Miss Leslie met again and soon were genuinely in love although neither spoke a word of it to the other. But when little Clara had been operated upon successfully, the crisis came.

It cannot be called a powerful conception
16 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A lawyer marries an actress a year after the death of his first wife. His daughter grieves so constantly because her mother's picture is removed from the wall that she is threatened with blindness. Nothing cures her grief till the picture is restored to its place. The clear photography and good acting do everything possible to make this pathetic subject matter convincing, but it cannot be called a powerful conception. - The Moving Picture World, February 15, 1913
