A peculiar sort of a plot
21 July 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel picture drama, written by James Oliver Curwood. A peculiar sort of a plot, concerning occultism and the exposure of a charlatan. It contains some very realistic and thrilling scenes, also an interesting love story. The leading people in the cast are Jack McDonald, Stella Razeto and Guy Oliver, who are finely supported. It is more than an ordinary offering. - The Moving Picture World, January 16, 1915
