Storyline

Silas, a paralytic, has two daughters and a son. Betty, his particular pride, meets Ned, an artist, from the city, and is soon secretly posing for him. Ned's influence over the girl is greatly increased, when John, the brother, goes to war, and there follows the usual tragedy of a wild, fun-loving young girl, thrown too much in the company of a middle-aged man of the world. Ned, the Lothario, is about to wash his hands of the whole affair and leave for Europe, when Betty makes a last appeal to him and he casts her brutally aside. Then the news comes to the old father, who sends for him and a violent scene takes place, peculiarly pathetic, in the fact that the old man is paralyzed. He demands justice, but the insolent roué laughs in his face and jeers at him and his daughter, until nature rebels and can stand no more.

User Reviews

The production is commendable
27 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Written and produced by Walter Clark Bellows, and heralded as a troubled romance. The cast is made up of Clifford Bruce, an artist; Ralph Delmore. a paralytic father; Harry Vosburgh, his son, and Adrienne Kroell and Alma Russell as his two daughters. This is evidently intended to be a pretentious picture, perhaps it is. The production is commendable, artistically considered, but the plot as developed on the screen is unpleasant and inconsistent. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
