Fails to get over strongly
A one-reel sermon that fails to get over strongly and perhaps chiefly because there is something irritating in the weakness of its hero that locks the door on sympathy. The clerk has money to pay the last installment on his home, occupied by his old mother and himself, but meeting a fellow clerk and two girls is "forced" to treat in order to show that he really is no tightwad. The result is that he and his mother are sold out of their home. It has well made scenes and is well acted. - The Moving Picture World, November 21, 1914
