Jim warns a young woman bather against a dangerous undertow. Heedless of his warning, she goes beyond her depth and is carried out into the lashing surf. Jim dashes in and saves her.

Proves very interesting
13 May 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A three-reel number, written by Phillip Walsh and produced by Otis Turner. The first reel develops the hero's first love affair in a rather uncertain way, but the mystery is preserved to strengthen the remainder of the story, which proves very interesting. After a separation from the first, he meets the second sister, a Salvation Army girl, who gives up his love when she discovers the truth. The scenes at the beach and the Salvation Army meetings are very pleasing. The photography is good, and some unique effects are achieved. A pleasing number. - The Moving Picture World, February 28, 1914
