Does not possess enough probability or attractiveness
A picture of such decided unpleasantness that it leaves a bad feeling behind it. The young man drinks a pint of whiskey in his mother's presence and then follows his brother to the home of a fast woman. A quarrel ensues between Phil and the woman in which the latter is shot. Edwin assumes the blame. Later he hides in a church tower. His mother dies and he climbs out of the tower just in time to discover her in the coffin. He dies from the shock of this discovery. A plot of this sort does not possess enough probability or attractiveness to make it enjoyable. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
