Storyline

On either side of a central partition, two life histories are given. One is toasted by his friends as he enters manhood and finishes the night in a state of intoxication. The other spends this solemn evening in his career with his mother, reading Holy Writ. So through life the contrast continues; one man rapidly sinks from bad to worse, the other rises steadily. The first, on leaving prison, where he has been placed for his share in a drunken brawl, has to appeal to the second, as an old school friend, for assistance. Met soon after by his old companions, the ex-prisoner has a drinking bout, and ends in delirium tremens. Fighting with a policeman he is arrested and transported, and in a highly effective concluding scene, we are shown "the ocean between two human lives." Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Distinctly of the homiletic order
9 March 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Sermons on the screen are often effective. This one presented in a church or during a lecture would support any argument a speaker might advance regarding the dangers of the downward path or the benefits of the way upward. It is the life history of two separate individuals illustrated. One goes the bad way; the other goes the good way. One spends a portion of his life in prison and ultimately dies in the agonies of delirium tremens. The other becomes an honored man. The closing scene, representing the two, with the ocean of life between, is effective. It is a strongly worked out picture, but distinctly of the homiletic order. - The Moving Picture World, July 22, 1911
