The picture lacks vigor
24 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story of a married couple who had separated, but who, when the man's mother, whom both love, is coming to see them, agree to pretend they still are happy. They set up the old home again to entertain her. She expects to stay but a few hours, then loses her train and decides to remain all night. The theme is most delicately treated; but the picture lacks vigor, is even slow. It is an offering of lovely scenes and beautiful poses more than of human passion or fates. Sydney Drew plays convincingly the man, with Anita Stewart in the role opposite to him, a part that seemed to us a bit beyond her depth at present. It is a role that calls for experience and when Miss Stewart has had a chance to watch the world a few years longer, she will have the skill to play such situations with much power. Mrs. Maurice plays the mother. The man's valet deserves notice; in fact, there is much to commend in many of the lesser figures. The photography is good. The script, by George Cameron, has been produced by Ralph Ince. - The Moving Picture World, July 19, 1913
