Not entertaining or satisfying
21 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel photoplay is one that is filled with occurrences that are not entertaining or satisfying. To the spectator who sits through it it is disgusting. The poor moon should not be made responsible for throwing its rays on such a conception. Robbery, abduction, attempted murder, etc., etc., and then some impossible and improbable situations take place. This picture must be seen to get the full melodramatic flavor. - The Moving Picture World, April 25, 1914
