Easily the best offering of to-day's regular releases
This picture is easily the best offering of to-day's regular releases on account of its tremendously effective climax. We see a half-witted, sodden drunkard set a long fuse of shavings to a large keg of powder in the log cabin of a man who had once befriended him and to which immediately after, two little girls come home from school. But the son of the drunkard is hungry and also comes to the cabin for food, scaring away the children. In a moment, there is a terrible explosion; the cabin is knocked to pieces, but it is the son and not the children who dies. If such an explosion can be made more effective and real, it may be done in some later picture; but we think this will stand for a while. The photography is clear. Alfred Paget is the drunkard; Robert Harron, his son, and Lionel Barrymore, his friend. On the other side, W.J. Butler is the father of the children, played by Mae Marsh and a little girl. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
