Storyline

The dead man's decentralized life is exemplified in a half-finished will and an incompleted invention of a printing press. The mother impresses upon her two sons the power of concentration by a magnifying glass held to the sun's rays. One accepts the lesson and finishes the work of the father. The other becomes the tool of the rival printer. His lesson was to come through experience and the suffering of others. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Clear and romantic enough
3 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There have been a good many pictures dealing with inventions, yet they seem to go with the public with whom an invention stands (happily for the script writer) for success. This story, with Claire McDowell in a leading role and well supported, will be liked. It has a touch of the quality that passes for depth: is clear and romantic enough and has suspense, mostly due to the skill of the players in simulating concern as to the outcome of the developing situation. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
