It exploits Sunday school virtues
8 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A picture that will not wholly escape the charge that it exploits Sunday school virtues or virtues that are conventionally and unconvincingly shown. Among its characters, it has a very good adopted brother, a brute of a big brother who drinks, a drunken book writer who turns out to be the hero's helper, and a couple of thugs. The rest are Western village characters. This reviewer cannot say that he enjoyed the picture, but it was made for a certain public that can safely be counted as fair. - The Moving Picture World, September 13, 1913
