"Gadzooks!" and "Odds bodkins!"
14 March 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

You can almost hear the clash of swords and the gallants crying "Gadzooks!" and "Odds bodkins!" in this film. The Victor Hugo romance is admirably set in motion in this production. There is a commendable care taken in the costuming, and the court scenes, gambling tables, dancing girls, duel, etc., all lend atmosphere in keeping with the story, which is shown in two reels. In the second reel the action is somewhat complicated, and one or two sub-titles would help to a fuller understanding of the plot. It is a dashing performance throughout, and will make its way wherever offered. - The Moving Picture World, November 30, 1912
