Storyline

Albert Graham is very happy with his wife and little daughter, Lottie. His rich father, although strenuously opposed to his son's marriage, loves his grandchild. Albert entertains, and is persuaded by his persistent wife to enter into a stock speculation with a number of friends. He is unaware that the United Mine Stock, which he contemplates buying, is the very stock his father has given his broker instructions to sell. A lively market in stocks causes the inquiry, "Who is selling, and who is buying?" This question is answered when Lottie, visiting her grandparents, tells of her father's gain of fifty thousand dollars on the Exchange. This fact is verified when their maid tells them: "The one who ruined you is your own son!" Albert learns that he has bankrupted his father, and attempts to repay him. The father, believing his son implicated in a scheme to cause his downfall, refuses, and orders him from the house, Albert's frequent quarrels with his wife are heard of by the father. ...

There are some finely made sets
2 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story about people of wealth in Italy, and of a father who has steeled his heart against an only son who married against his will. The old man loves his little granddaughter and gives his life to save her from a burning building, but even as he dies he refuses to forgive his son. There are some finely made sets in it and the story is clear. This photography is excellent and the fire is effectively handled and made to seem most realistic. It makes a very fair offering. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
