All of the characterizations fit the story
24 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This film story covers familiar ground, but it does so in a careful sincere manner and as a result the picture holds the attention very well. At the beginning the observer sees the young revenue officer on the trail of the moonshiners. He pretends to be one of them and only the intervention of the girl saves him from death. She is moved to aid him through seeing a picture of his baby. The photography is smooth and the natural, restrained acting of the girl particularly good. All of the characterizations fit the story and the final scenes are all that could be desired. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
