A good commercial picture with some freshness of interest
A melodramatic love story in which the heroine's lover is overheard threatening to strike her father who has treated him with undeserved contempt. Later, we see the old man murdered by his butler in the dark so that we can't see the weapon. The lover is accused of the deed, but in an unexpected manner the knife is discovered. The photography, the sets and the acting are almost perfect for such a story and the offering held the audience's attention strongly. Mildred Garrison, the authoress, has made a good commercial picture with some freshness of interest and her script has been clearly produced by Maurice Costello, who also plays the leading role. Rosemary Theby is convincingly romantic as the girl. Harry Northrup plays the butler rather heavily. Charles Eldridge plays the rather foolish old man with his usual intelligence. Edith Halleren and Joseph Baker are also in the cast. - The Moving Picture World, March 1, 1913
