More suitable for the story teller than the picture maker
The characters in this picture are the same in type as those in a recent release of the Biograph Company, "The Revenue Man and the Girl." The backgrounds and scenes also are similar. The players who act the picture are different. On the whole, it is not so successful, being, by its very nature, more suitable for the story teller than the picture maker. This is most noticeable where one of the picture's characters plays on the violin and the effect of his music is shown in the heroine's charge of attitude toward a city man who is visiting the hills. She didn't love him, but under the music's spell, she thought she did. We don't hear any music when the shiftless genius of the hills scrapes on his old fiddle. We suspect that it's pretty dismal sound, but in the next scene we see the girl listening and then we see her fall into the arms of the city man. It doesn't seem very effecting. The two plan to run away together and this speedily brings the story to its climax, the discrediting of the city fop and the girl's recognition of the worthy qualities is a sturdy young mountaineer, whom, without knowing it, she had really loved from the first even while she had repulsed and made fun of him. This, the player's work had shown rather skillfully. The manly mountaineer's part is also very well done as is, in fact, each of the parts. The picture has a good deal of humor, for the fiddler too loved the girl and he thought to win her with pumpkins. That is a very commendable addition, quite true of rural life. The picture will stand, because of the good things that are in it. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
