Entertains the observer
3 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel number, with Alec Francis and Belle Adair in the leading parts. The girl is encouraged by the minister to play a part in an amateur production. Later, after their marriage, she undertakes the recuperate the family funds by regular theatrical work. The happiness of the family is threatened, but the wife abandons the project before it is too late. The film story, while not a powerful one, has in it a good deal that interests and entertains the observer. It is well acted. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
