Makes a substantial offering
26 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Anne and Banister Merwin in this picture have treated an old situation a bit more sincerely than the usual offering, and have made a very fair release, William West plays a very convincing minister who won't let his daughter (Mary Fuller) marry the scapegrace younger brother (Harry Beaumont), whose elder brother (Richard Tucker) also loves the girl, but doesn't win her. Is very intelligently acted and makes a substantial offering. - The Moving Picture World, April 12, 1913
