Storyline

Margaret McDonald, reared in cultured surroundings and daughter of a rich man, falls violently in love with the poor violinist, Enrico. When this is discovered by the girl's father, there is a violent scene. He objects to his daughter marrying a poor man and, to make sure of the separation, he forbids the violinist to see his daughter. After several attempts to defeat the old man's plans, Enrico is discouraged and heart-broken. He plans to return to his own country. Before sailing, he writes to Margaret, urging her to marry him at once. They are married secretly, and very soon the violinist sails away to Italy, expecting his wife to follow. In years that follow, Enrico wins fame and fortune in his native country. However, his struggle has been a lonesome one, for he has received no word from his early sweetheart.

Sincerely presented and appealing
16 March 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel drama based on a familiar theme, nicely pictured and well acted throughout. Carol Halloway doubles in the part of mother and daughter. First as a young girl she marries Enrico, the violinist, against her father's wishes. F. Sumner handles the leading role very creditably. He goes back to Italy and becomes famous, but years of separation ensue. He returns to America later as a street musician. His meeting with his daughter and subsequent regeneration is prettily developed. A sincerely presented and appealing story. - The Moving Picture World, October 24, 1914
