Nicely acted and well pictured

An interesting story of a young woman doctor and her younger sister. The younger girl is badly spoiled and runs away with the older girl's lover. Five years later, after living a fast society life, her health is wrecked. Her husband deserts her, but the older sister comes to her aid and eventually restores her health. The picture ends without showing what became of the husband. Nicely acted and well pictured. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
