Beautiful marine scenes
13 January 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a superior picture drama in many respects. The author is Hamilton Smith and the producer Robert G. Vignola. The leading people are Helen Lindroth, Alice Hollister and Harry Millarde. There are many beautiful marine scenes in this picture. Incidentally it contains one of the most realistic storms ever filmed. The plot tells a touching story of a sister's sacrifice. The outcome of it all contains great heart interest. This is a splendid offering. - The Moving Picture World, September 5, 1914
