There is continuous action
4 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A melodrama in which there is continuous action, and it seemed to hold the attention of the audience. It has a situation that is not at all new. We find an adventuress set by crooks to win the confidence of a millionaire. She falls in love with him, and desires to escape stealing from him his great treasure which, in this picture, is a painting. As usual, the millionaire rescues her from the crooks and marries her. It is not very convincing, but has been told with backgrounds that suggest wealth and a pleasant life, and these the audience generally like. The photography is good and in some of the leading effects very beautiful. - The Moving Picture World, September 6, 1913
