Could not be highly recommended
In this two-reel production there is considerable that is interesting, but the picture has little if any moral backing, and could not be highly recommended. The story is of how a young girl enamored of a professional pianist, forms the opium habit. The former sweetheart of the man tries to save the girl, and in so doing the pianist is shot and killed. - The Moving Picture World, May 22, 1915
