Storyline

Ellen and Mary, two sisters, are courted by George and Sam, who are brothers. At evening when the girls' mother plays to them the twilight song, she tells them that just as they are happy now in the twilight of the day, so must they watch to keep their love and happiness also in the twilight hour of life. They laugh, never doubting the future. Mary and Sam are married, and their hopes are fulfilled. George, however, goes to the city, where he goes rapidly downhill. He marries Doris Grant, and Ellen is left on the farm, broken-hearted. Years later, George, released from penitentiary, his wife dead, seeks the home of his boyhood. He finds that Sam and Mary have adopted his little girl, and faithful Ellen still is awaiting. Thus, in the twilight of life, the lovers, whose early dreams were frustrated, find their happiness together. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

User Reviews

Very successful in its way
21 September 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel photoplay of the sentimental type, written by Marc Edmund Jones. It is very successful in its way and leads up to a home-coming scene of real pathos. The opening scenes are pastoral and show two brothers and two sisters living on adjoining farms. One brother deserts his sweetheart for the city; the other marries and remains home. Later years bring reverses and failure to the city man. He returns broken and penniless to find the happy family gathered about a Victrola playing "Love's Old Sweet Song." He is forgiven and taken in. This is obviously sentimental in treatment, but gets over very well. The photography is pleasing and the cast good. - The Moving Picture World, February 27, 1915
