Storyline

To the little town of Sunset Pass came the Widow Brown and little daughter, Ruth, The little mother had consumption, and although she grew weaker each day, she bravely concealed it from her daughter, until death placed its hand upon her. She was only a dance pianist, but was beloved by all and even Big Bill, the cruel proprietor of the dance hall, paused for a moment to look upon her face as they carried her out. Jack Keen, the best and squarest gambler in Sunset Pass, closed his game when he heard the strains of "Nearer my God to Thee." The player was little Ruth, the widow's daughter, who wanted to begin where her mother left off. Jack stepped forward to learn who the player was, just as the proprietor was about to eject the little child for playing a hymn in his dance hall, but Jack informed him that Ruth would from that moment be known as his adopted daughter, and demands the respect of all who heard him make the announcement.

The author doesn't deserve much credit
13 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The scenario of this offering, as given in the synopsis, is better than the picture, but that is the author's weakness. He has called for the playing on the piano of "Nearer, My God, to Thee," and, since all music looks alike, the little touch of sentiment was lost. The story needed this, since it lacks atmosphere; there is too little to it. We have some pretty backgrounds and pretty scenes, but the author doesn't deserve much credit for anything very dramatic or new. Clara Williams plays two roles, that of the widow and that of her daughter when grown up. Walter Bridges plays the boy who falls in love with her. Edgar Jones and John Ince have roles. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
