The Homeric credit of knowing a good thing when seen
A virile and interesting idea is presented in this picture, although the writer of the scenario deserves only the Homeric credit of knowing a good thing when seen. Mr. Norman Duncan's story of the Rev. Fairweather and his lumberjack friends, printed about a year ago in Harper's, is followed very closely indeed by this picture. That is, not at all in derogation; one is a story, the other a moving picture. Sometimes producers forget that there is any difference in form between the two and spoil a picture to make it too closely like some good short story. This is a good picture and worth seeing, although the virile idea it tried to bring out, and that the story brought out very clearly, is only suggested faintly. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
