Has some beautifully lighted scenes
The story told by this picture is unusually weak for a Biograph. In it the heiress falls in love with her new gardener and he a crook who has been paid by the villain to get employment at her house to steal a paper from her which will deprive her of her inheritance. Then the author didn't carefully guard our sympathies away from the villain of the story who, as the rich man's nephew, was counted heir until the girl came and, so it seems, supplanted him without good cause. The hiding of the will was not strong, nor was the snatching of the first will from the old man by the nephew in an early act. One can make a will as many times as one pleases. It is a well acted offering and has some beautifully lighted scenes and some good photography. Claire McDowell is the girl; Harry Carey, the crook; Lionel Barrymore, the nephew; Hector Dion, the butler, etc. - The Moving Picture World, September 6, 1913
