He is made to resemble Christ
A mystical picture of Civil War days in which the central point of interest is a character who comes, a stranger, into a home distracted by fraternal war and brings help and peace. The script by Marguerite Bertsch has been produced by Wilfrid North. This character, played by Charles Kent, is dressed in modern clothing and seems just a kindly- hearted man, but by his attitude toward life and by the effect his character has on those with whom he comes in contact, he is made to resemble Christ, He should not have been called "The Carpenter" without more reason, for he looked not at all like a carpenter. The picture can only charitably be said to tell a story; but it does create an effect. The stranger is the picture's one fact and the feeling that it creates holds the spectator strongly, even with the simple, artificial (perhaps artfully careless) means used to bring it out. The author and producer have scored a decided success in this offering. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
