User reviews



Ben and Alice are shown as children and then as grown-ups. The press gang gets Ben and takes him on board a British man-of-war. Alice, setting out to look for Ben, is hit by a swinging boom. She is discovered by the captain of a British man-of-war and brought on board. Later, when war is declared between England and France, the girl is put ashore in France. Ben, going ashore for water, is wounded by French soldiers and makes his way to the house where Alice is staying. As she has suffered a loss of memory by reason of the blow from the boom, she does not recognize Ben. She is brought home, however, and apparently her memory is restored by old associations. The play is not without interest. - The Moving Picture World, September 28, 1912
