Arnold Graves falls in love and marries Lettie, his mother's seamstress. For marrying beneath his station he is told to leave the house. Five years later, Lettie, now a widow, returns to her mother-in-law's house for aid, but is refused. Just about this time Mrs. Graves is going to Europe, and, while riding in her automobile to the station, she sees a little boy with two kittens which he is going to drown. The note that she sends by her chauffeur to the housekeeper to care for the little kittens, proves an opportunity for him to substitute the little children in place of the kittens. Some time later the housekeeper sends a letter with a photograph of the children, saying that "the kittens" are getting along nicely. In the meantime, Lettie manages to get a position as chambermaid in the same hotel that Mrs. Graves is stopping after her return from abroad, and, in cleaning out the room, sees the photograph of her children.

Too plainly contrived to convince
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A little story of sentiment that is not without its charm, though by no means a great picture. A rich woman's son has married a girl in his mother's employ and has been disowned. He has died, and his widow with two children has applied to her former mistress (her mother-in-law) for help, and unavailingly. The story's object is to get the rich woman to accept the children, but the means it takes to arrive at this end are too plainly contrived to convince. In the first place, a couple of kittens are brought in boldly and then the chauffeur is told to give them to the housekeeper to care for while the rich woman is in Europe. Now he might have known the woman's former seamstress (it wasn't shown nevertheless), he takes the kittens to her and lets her substitute her children for the kittens so that the housekeeper will care for them for a while. The means by which the woman and her mother-in-law are brought together in the hotel are also conventional. Such things cannot deeply interest and do not. Yet the offering has merit. It is wholesome and attractive because of the things it deals with. The producer has handled his scenes pretty well. The script, by A.H. Giebler, has been produced by Charles Seay. Mabel Trunnelle has the leading role, with May Abbey. Elizabeth Miller, Cora Williams, Paul McAllister and others in the cast. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
