The adaptation has been prepared with care
29 September 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This multiple reel is a film adaptation of a story of the same name by Judge Harris Dickson. It deals with the "Terrors Old New Orleans" and despite its name has nothing whatever to do with Australia. From the films it appears that an association of cut-throats and highwaymen was in the habit of meeting in a notorious resort named "The Kangaroo." Here they either gambled or planned the commission of crimes against property and against the person. There is a love story interwoven with the tale of outrage and murder. After all the "villians" get their just deserts, there is a happy wedding. Much might be said in praise of some of the out-door settings, which were well chosen and helped to create the old New Orleans and Old South atmosphere. Considerable pains seem to have been taken in the staging of the interiors. The costumes were correct and no expense seems to have been spared in this respect. The acting was good on the whole. The adaptation itself has been prepared with care and there were many tense and some picturesque scenes. - The Moving Picture World, June 20, 1914
