In many ways is a big offering
A picture that in many ways is a big offering. There are two reels of it, and it has some popular features; especially so is a beautifully pictured classic dance which is made to symbolize life and its pursuit of happiness. This falls naturally into a modern story, whose author seems to have imagined life itself as a dance, with some of the dancers hearing the music as solemn and some as gay. There is trouble when an actress, whose ear is in tune to the gay music, marries a studious man; she is water and he is oil, and they can't mix. There is a child of the union, which is used to enforce the picture's conclusion. Beautiful photography adds much to the offering. Henry Walthall and Blanche Sweet have the leads, and the latter makes good use of a big chance; she is fine in this role. Many of the girls in the dance have flowing draperies, with bare legs, and their dancing is remarkably graceful. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
