Storyline

During a rehearsal of his new play, Peter Richards recognizes in Mary Walters, a well-known leading woman of twenty years before. She has met with reverses and is now employed as wardrobe woman in the company which is to produce his play. On the opening night the play is a failure, and the manager who financed it decides to take it off immediately. Mary Walters is the only one in the theater who has feeling enough to show sympathy for the author in his misfortune. Through a chance remark of an extra girl Peter gets an idea for another play, which he writes and calls "Granny," and he has enough confidence in Mary Walter's ability to offer her the leading part, which she gratefully accepts. Confident of its success, Peter's ambition is to produce "Granny" at the same theater where his former play met with such complete failure, but the manager refuses to produce it and Peter is forced to sell his home in order to secure enough money to put the play on. During his days of trouble Peter ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Very delightful and affecting
1 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

As charming a little picture as one could want to look at. It is a simple story of theatrical life. Such pictures are apt to touch something real in the personal backgrounds of all who have to do with producing them and give the spectator a sense of reality. Surely this offering convinces and we found it very delightful and affecting. Mrs, George B. Walters is wholly charming in the leading role as a one-time star who had for some reason dropped behind, but who comes back to win new success for an old friend and laurels and love for herself. Mrs. Walters is probably one of the best loved old ladies in photoplaydom and in such a part she is thoroughly herself. She is well supported by R. Morris and B. McCullum. The photography is perfect: these Philadelphia pictures are causing comment on this score and deserve all the praise they get. The author is W.G. Clifton, and Barry O'Neil has produced the script, making some lovely scenes and keeping the whole human and clear. - The Moving Picture World, May 10, 1913
