Storyline

Thousands of persons would die in the present if it were not for the memories of the past. Old Mrs. Merkle has one cherished reminder of bygone days, her wedding gown. It is filled with associations of the most sacred and hallowed character. This heirloom is coveted by a wealthy woman, who recognizes the rarely of its fabric and the richness of its lace, and decides that it would be a most unique and unusual dress for her daughter's approaching wedding. The gentle old soul will not part with it until, to avoid eviction from her modest little home, she is obliged to sacrifice it. Unfortunately, she loses the money realized, and after all is driven from home and compelled to wend her way to the poor-house. She is met by her next-door neighbor's children, to whom she has always been kind, and they induce her to go to their home, where she is welcomed by her parents, who treat her as if she were their own.

Dolores Costello is as lovable as ever
29 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Mrs. Mary Maurice is featured in this picture. This fact alone goes far to make for the success ot the subjeet. The story is a simple one; yet it is of a type with which this company is so successful. Mrs. Maurice portrays an old woman with one possession prized above all others, her wedding gown. When adversity comes she is obliged to accept an offer she has received for the garment from an antique hunter. She displays in her interpretation the intelligence and the charm which always characterize her work. Two children have important parts, Kenneth Casey and Dolores Costello. The latter is as lovable as ever; the former is permitted to overact. James Lackaye directs the picture. - The Moving Picture World, November 8, 1913
