A rather made-to-order plot
31 March 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel number with Irving Cummings as the hero and Mildred Oakes and Pearl Sindelar in the leading feminine roles. The artist's model induces Bruce to marry her so she can leave him her money. Later she comes to life at the undertaker's parlors. He marries again and later his second wife deserts him. He then finds happiness with the first, whom he meets at the studio. This struck us as a rather made-to-order plot, though it possesses enough novelty to hold the interest. It does not get hold of the emotions very strongly. - The Moving Picture World, January 17, 1914
