Storyline

Tom Manning, a struggling New York sculptor ever ready to divide his last dollar with his artist friend, has a woman model, who dies of consumption while posing, and begs Tom to adopt her little child. Tom's financial condition makes this additional responsibility almost impossible, but the sweet affection which the child instantly bestows upon him so wins his heart and endears herself to Tom that be feels repaid for the sacrifice. The little girl forms an extreme attachment for Manning and proudly calls him her papa to everyone, much to Tom's pride. Tom has a sweetheart that he left in San Francisco five years before. She, being anxious to see Tom again, begs her father to take her along on a business trip, which he is taking to New York. Dorothy wires Tom of her proposed visit and he and his adopted little girl make great preparations for her arrival. Dorothy in New York surprises Tom with a visit to his studio, but finds him called out by an artist friend. She finds the little girl... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The picture is weak
23 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The story, though simple and not new, is not clear-cut enough to leave a distinct impression. A kind-hearted painter has adopted a child of a dead model. His sweetheart comes and, finding the child who says that the painter is her "papa," misunderstands. This is old, old stuff and it seldom gets over. It surely doesn't here. The picture is weak as an offering although the playing and photography and stage work are good. - The Moving Picture World, June 13, 1914
