Neither fresh nor consistent
8 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The author of this picture, Wallace Clifton, deserves credit for the easy, effective development of his plot, which, if analyzed, is neither fresh nor consistent. The picture pleased the audience. Its producer, F.J. Grandon, has put it on very clearly, and in choosing his backgrounds has managed to give the impression that he has set it on one big stage. The players, Clara Williams, heroine; Edgar Jones, hero, and John Ince, villain, have acted their parts in the conventional way that fits this sort of story perfectly. The photography is clear. - The Moving Picture World, March 15, 1913
