Storyline

Biff Hogan, a tough, wins Mollie McIntyre, because he demonstrates his athletic superiority over Larry McGuire, a hard-working man. After his marriage, Hogan gets into bad company, breaks into a factory with two comrades, and after a hand to hand fight with the watchman, he is arrested and sent to prison. In the meantime, his wife obtains a divorce and marries McGuire. Upon his release, Hogan tries to see his child, but is refused permission by McGuire. In revenge he decides to take McGuire's life. Going to the latter's house, he prepares to shoot him, and nearly takes the life of his own child who is sitting in an arm chair and wears McGuire's hat. The shock makes Hogan resolve to lead a better life. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There are some striking scenes
28 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel drama visualizes existence in the lower walks of life. There are some striking scenes especially between Hogan (Lamar Johnstone), a former pugilist, and his rival for the affections of Molly Mclntyre, when they come to blows. Molly accepts Hogan to later regret it. He attempts to rob the office and is sent to prison. Molly secures a divorce and marries McGuire. Here is where the "punch" comes in, as Hogan, by a hair-breadth, misses killing his own child. A very interesting picture. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
