The most is made of a slight idea
3 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The plot of this is quite novel, but it does not make a very strong story. The young man buys the orphan girl's hair and holds over her constantly the threat of cutting it off. His intentions are uncertain till toward the end, when he asks her to marry him. The photography is good and the most is made of a slight idea. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
