Not entirely new but thoroughly interesting
21 August 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel film by Marion Brooks, combining higher finance and higher politics in a not entirely new but thoroughly interesting way. E.P. Sullivan gives us a strong study of a judge resisting the behests of the money trust. In a series of scenes we see him visited by men who desire to bribe him. He defies them and for this is himself charged with bribery, Irving Cummings appears as the star reporter, who clears the judge and wins the girl. He picks pockets, holds up several men and does many things that reporters seldom ever do, but these exaggerated incidents can perhaps be excused, as the picture is strong enough to overcome them. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
