Home Sweet Home is an appropriately old-fashioned title for this musty sentimental drama. Wealthy heroine Lila Leslie rebels against her parents and runs away from home. Once on her own, the girl proves easy pickin's for every sexual predator in town. Even worse, she becomes an alcoholic after one of her duplicitous swains plies her with liquor-filled candy. Sadder and wiser, Leslie heads wearily back to the open arms of her parents, thoroughly resigned to the fact that there's No Place Like Home. The cheapness of the production and the crudity of the acting tended to evoke laughter rather than tears, which may be why Home Sweet Home has never been ranked as a classic of the silent screen.
