Storyline

Detected in the act of stealing a wealthy woman's scarf from an auto, "Slivers," a thief, escapes from the clutches of a pursuing policeman and jumps a moving freight train. He applies at the Prescott farmhouse for something to eat, but refuses to work in payment until he meets Alice, the old farmer's charming daughter. The sight of her sets him on the right track and he is given work by Prescott. The discovery is made one evening by the Prescotts that "Sliver" cannot read, but the former thief secures a grammar, and he pores over the book until he delights Alice with his self-taught knowledge. Gradually a bond of affection springs up between the two that rapidly develops into love. "Silvers" makes good on the farm, and, at last wins the consent of the Prescotts to marry Alice. A few days later Paul Prescott, Alice's brother, arrives back at the old farm on his vacation, and proves to be none other than the policeman from whom "Slivers" escaped that eventful day in the city.

Fails to get the grip that persuades us that the story is truthful
19 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture with a situation to please a large number of patrons, in that it shows a man wholly submerged breaking through all difficulties and making a man of himself. It is not convincingly shown and fails to get the grip that persuades us that the story is truthful. The story is clear and in part well acted. The leading role, "Slivers," fits E.H. Calvert very well. A younger man would have been better; but he shows a regeneration of a tough character very well. Wm. Bailey's farmer is decidedly weak. Beverly Bayne as the farmer's daughter and Eleanor Blanchard do excellently as do Howard Missimer and John Steppling as rural characters. Frank Dayton is a policeman; Chas. Hitchcock, a brakeman, and Dolores Cassinelli, Evebelle Prout and Mildred Weston have small parts. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
