Those who criticize the moving picture should see this one

Here is a story that goes to the heart in a way that would be difficult to explain, yet it is easily understood when the picture is seen. The wife bears her burden uncomplainingly and the palsied invalid in the next room doesn't know the difference in their circumstances. But it comes about in a dramatic way that he learns and life comes back to his palsied limbs, and the picture closes with a reunion and change which brings happiness to the three. Those who criticize the moving picture should see this one; they should carefully study the lesson it teaches and perhaps they would agree that some good can come out of a motion picture after all. It is one of the strongest of the week and should prove popular with any audience. - The Moving Picture World, August 13, 1910
