User reviews



Producer Thomas Ricketts, of the American, has given patrons of that product a two-part subject, "In the Moonlight," which has many delightful light effects and artistic settings. The story has a sad ending, but the effect is lightened by the careful avoidance of gruesome details. The cast is exceptionally strong, as we have Miss Winifred Greenwood, Miss Charlotte Burton, Ed Coxen and George Field in the leading characters. Miss Greenwood, in the part of Mary Langton, brings out strongly the disappointment of a young woman, flushed with health and home, who is deceived by the wealthy broker, George Lytton, a married man, to whom she has given her affections, ignorant of the fact that he is a man of family. Miss Burton, as Sunshine, Mary Langton's niece, is buoyant and girlish, and carries with her the atmosphere of happiness and innocence in her first love affair that ends so happily. Ed Coxen gives us another finished portraiture in the part of Frank Lytton, the sweetheart of sunshine. George Lytton, father of Frank and the unscrupulous character of the story, has an able counterpart in the person of George Field. The society woman, Dora Westley, mother of Sunshine and sister of Mary Langton, is very capably represented by Miss Josephine Ditt. - The Moving Picture World, May 2, 1914
