A live, thrilling story
31 May 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A love story told around an episode in Virginia during the Civil War. Through a complication of circumstances an officer is condemned to be shot as a spy, but the discovery that a child has used a missing paper in making a doll causes his sweetheart to ride to save him. And that ride! Well, few women would want to undertake it for any reason. It is one of the most thrilling ever put on a film, and there is a burst of applause when it ends and the rope is taken from the condemned man's neck. The whole picture is good and, like other stories built up around real or imaginary wartime episodes, it poses an unusual degree of interest, and should be popular with those who like a live, thrilling story adequately translated into motion pictures. - The Moving Picture World, May 28, 1910
