A good touch of pathos
2 November 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

One of the prettiest domestic stories shown for a long time. Virginia Kirtley plays the part of a childless young wife and Irving Cummings the husband. She entertains the neighbors' children while he is gone, and he brings back the daughter of his old chum, who died. This has a good touch of pathos in it and gets hold of the observer's better feelings. - The Moving Picture World, March 27, 1915
