Wakeful sympathy with the heart of the public
A pretty melodrama of pathos with many lively scenes in which artfully made sets and fine photography play an important part. The author, Eleanor Kinkhead. in putting the play together, has shown wakeful sympathy with the heart of the public, and, using the dear, old things that we all like in a picture, has succeeded in making a decidedly pleasant impression. The players, Rosemary Theby and Harry Myers in the leads, do commendably and help a great deal. The story deals with the .great sorrow a theft of a ruby brings to a young woman. She is not prosecuted, but has to toil for long years in privation in order to make up for the theft and become worthy of happiness. It will be liked everywhere. Harry Myers directed it. - The Moving Picture World, March 7, 1914
