Tells a consistent story
A two-reel story, in which a young man sets out to reform Wall Street. He winds up by becoming one of the worst of speculators and his young wife finally aids in "breaking" him, so that he will come to his senses. This has an agreeable cast and tells a consistent story, but gets a very slow development. Many of the situations also impress the observer as being of a familiar order. - The Moving Picture World, June 27, 1914
