There is a very pleasing child's part
There is a very pleasing child's part in this love story of a widower, a frontier doctor. The child is his daughter and consoles him when he lost the woman who had engaged herself to him. A younger man won her away from him. This man was hurt a little later. The doctor knows that he could have killed him, but cured him nevertheless. His latter theme has been used several times and it isn't pleasing in itself. A new player takes the part of the young woman. She is, herself, pleasing, but does not have a great faculty for the expression that makes a picture effective. Perhaps she has come from the stage where the voice is depended upon and experience will teach her the difference, for she shows intelligence. The doctor and his little girl were put over in fine shape. - The Moving Picture World, December 23, 1911
