A very attractive story of two invalids
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very attractive story of two invalids, a poor girl dancer and a rich young man. He pays to have her operated upon by a famous surgeon and she is again able to dance. Later he protests his love for her in the theater, but she says she has given her heart to the man who aided her in the hospital. Later, when he reveals his identity, she accepts him. A pleasing number. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
