Money is not the greatest thing in life
15 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a two-reel story of a man who deserts his wife and child to search for gold in the West. He marries again after divorcing his first wife. When he has become rich many things conspire to show him that money is not the greatest thing in life. Remorse overcomes him and he bequeaths everything to his first wife and child, having separated from the second, and becomes a wanderer. There are characteristic Indian pictures in this and spirited fighting. The photography is good and the plot unfolds in a natural, convincing manner. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
