Shows careful thought and an appreciation of dramatic values
3 April 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this three-reel drama concerning militant suffragettes in England occur some very good mob scenes and we are introduced to a world of activity, which is refreshing for its newness in motion pictures. The story is not in the least melodramatic and shows careful thought and an appreciation of dramatic values. A certain rigidity in the construction might have been avoided by crossing the main theme with a lesser and lighter one, and though a certain sameness of characters was almost unavoidable, yet some way might have been found to make the contrasts sharper. But on the whole we must compliment Calder Johnstone, who wrote the play. He gave the producer an excellent scenario to work from. - The Moving Picture World, January 24, 1914
