Nothing mars a story of this type like cheap accessories
31 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two part story by Grace Cunard, apparently located in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The girl from the slums creeps into the hallway where the young artist finds her. He takes her into his rooms and induces her to pose for his masterpiece. The masterpiece itself was a mere daub, which should never have been allowed to appear in the film; nothing mars a story of this type like cheap accessories. The chief interest centers about the celebration of New Year's eve in the artist's headquarters, when the thieves come to recover the girl model. The story itself has some appeal, but the settings are not of the best. - The Moving Picture World, November 15, 1913
