Storyline

Poor photography is a drawback
13 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel number with Barbara Tennant and O.A.C. Lund in the leads. The story is very broad in tone, but not out of keeping with the vigorous Northwest in which it is located. Lindsey J. Hall did some strong work in the dance hall scene where Pete tries to buy the young wife's love with his gold. The close is tragic. Poor photography is a drawback to this number. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
