It is a double exposure picture
8 December 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-part special, giving a melodrama dealing with Canadian frontier people and in which the R.N.W. Mounted Police figure prominently. The story has an atmosphere very much like the North Woods series recently produced by the Eclair people. It is a double exposure picture with the leading man. Edgar Jones, playing twins who look just alike. One is an officer sent out to bring in the other innocent, though accused of murder. The plot has been handled in a first-rate way and the picture makes a good substantial offering. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
