Storyline

Captain David Dodd, of the good ship "Agra," set sail for home, carrying with him fourteen thousand pounds in hard cash. After nearly losing the money in a fierce battle with pirates and again during a violent storm, the captain gave a sigh of relief when he at length reached home and deposited his fortune in Hardie's Bank, a conservative institution with an iron-clad reputation. Unhappily the captain's sense of security did not last long. Richard Hardie, the president of the bank, had been caught in the maelstrom of speculation. When Dodd deposited the fourteen thousand pounds, the bank was on the verge of bankruptcy.

The picture is well played throughout
25 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There are good situations and strong ones, too, in this two-part adaptation from the novel of Charles Reade. Some of the best of these begin at the point where Captain Dodd, finely portrayed by Charles Ogle, has rescued young Hardie from the burning insane asylum and stands on the cliff overlooking the surf below. The picture is well played throughout. Bigelow Cooper, Barry O'Moore, Miss McCoy and Richard Tucker are especially deserving of mention for good work. An excellent release. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
