Storyline

An adjutant comes in and lays before Colonel Allen, the charges against John Wild, a young soldier accused of theft. When the adjutant goes out, the Colonel remembers about his own wayward son, how he had left his home one evening, after a quarrel, never to return, shipping as a stoker on a big liner, and how, later, he had received word of his death in a shipwreck. As the Colonel is dreaming he is aroused by the entrance of the prisoner, "John Wild." He recognizes him as his son. Quickly getting rid of the sentinels, the Colonel questions his son.

A pathetic military episode
24 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A pathetic military episode in India, with Charles Kent. Dorothy Kelly and others in the principal roles. The photography is very pleasing and the settings are good. A portion of the son's story seemed merely repetition of what had gone before, but the story is an unusually well-acted one. - The Moving Picture World, March 7, 1914
