It jumps over a hundred years without warning
A two-part offering that is more of a preachment than a drama. It is not skillfully pictured and is weak in its transitions. It jumps over a hundred years without warning or explanation; none was needed by the story, it is true, but the jump is a jolt none the less. We leave in one scene the coast of Ireland and come up against the scoreboard of a college football game. Another scene early in the picture shows an aristocratic squire's family going in to dinner and on the table are four wine glasses. Three of them are soiled with the dregs of wine and one is half full. We don't believe the squire came in early and drank what had been poured out. One heroine, a fiancée of the squire's son, points at dinner to the roast as soon as it is brought in as asking for some tit-bit to be saved for her. and this is also very unlikely among well-bred people. These would hurt any story, but this one is not strong at best. W.E. Wing is the author and Edward Le Saint the producer. There is no brilliant playing in it. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
