Highly dramatic
21 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

James Oliver Curwood has traveled overseas and across desert sands for the scenes of this two-reel romance. The result of his plotting is a tale of considerable power, the harsh justice of the Arab upon the disloyal wife and her companion, being highly dramatic. The desert scenes were finely produced. Guy Oliver plays Omar Khan with force and picturesque effect, and the Joan Merrick of Stella Razeto is tender and appealing. Eugenie Besserer, Harry Devies and Fred Huntley round out an excellent cast. - The Moving Picture World, May 1, 1915
