Instructive and presenting a pleasing story
7 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

King Baggot handles the lead in this drama concerning some divorced parents who are reunited by a chain of circumstances beginning with the kidnapping of their child. The scenes are laid in Paris which is generously depicted and we get some interesting sidelights on the abominable traffic in children which is carried on in the underworld of the French capital. The film has the double value of being instructive and presenting a pleasing story. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
