Hurried scenes in the production
20 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A three-reel number, featuring Irving Cummings as the hero, and Rosemary Theby and Virginia Westbrook as the principal women of the cast Miss Theby appears in her familiar role of the heartless adventuress and succeeds in having the hero falsely imprisoned for a number of years. In the end, he is restored to his rightful position in the world, but the death of the adventuress was not led up to very well, and the hurried scenes in the production seemed to lack a very strong interest for some reason. A dog show is pictured toward the last of the story. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
