Storyline

Charles Kingley's parents gave him everything they had when he left his home to start business in a large city. Charles, like other country boys, by undivided effort and persistent application, made his way to the top. He married a woman of high position and had children, a son and a daughter. The daughter inherits her mother's snobbish characteristics, but the son is a democrat. Kingley's mother, a good, old, homely lady, not having seen her son for a number of years, decides to surprise him with a visit.

Hits the mark fairly well
22 November 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A semi-mystical picture that, in its ending, suggests "The Return of Peter Grim." The story is nothing like the play mentioned; but a dear old grandmother's ghost appears and, although not seen by her grandson, helps him out of a grievous difficulty. The old lady's son had become successful and had married a snobbish woman who didn't like the old- fashioned and not very presentable grandmother. The granddaughter was like her mother; but the grandson was different and proved himself worthy of her affection. The picture aims at sentiment. It is well acted and photographed and hits the mark fairly well. Its only marked weakness comes from a little obscurity. The grandson was too abruptly introduced. - The Moving Picture World, June 8, 1912
