Storyline

A mother pleads with the doctor to save her child's life, but the case is hopeless. The child dies. The mother pleads with the angel for her child when death's revelation of the child's future life appears, first at the head of his school class, later showing him in love, then happily married. He is a trusted employee, but he is later tempted by a woman whom he meets through a friend and he steals at the woman's command. Overhearing by chance that he is duped by the friend and the woman, he strangles the woman, and the vision fades out and the mother hands her baby to "The Angel of Death."

The whole production shows teamwork
17 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An impressive drama, well executed and photographed. It is one of the last pictures made by Herbert Brenon before going abroad. William Shay has the character of the son, grown to manhood, and Jane Fearnley, that of the mother. Both do excellent work, as in fact may be said of the entire cast. William Welch, who portrays the Savior, is especially effective in the final scene. His characterization is reverential; the effect is heightened by his craftsmanlike makeup, in which, by the way, Mr. Welch is unusually efficient. The whole production shows teamwork. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
