It has no character with whom it is possible to sympathize
1 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A story that distantly resembles Jekyll and Hyde, in that it has two characters, sisters, who look so much alike that the fiancé of the innocent one is deceived into thinking the wayward sister the one to whom he has plighted his troth. She leads him down to the "dregs." It is not an offering that could be made convincing, and it has no character with whom it is possible to sympathize. Yet it surely has scenes and situations that hold strongly because of acting mostly. Margarita Fisher plays both sisters in a perfect double exposure scene at the climax. Bob Leonard plays the man. The producer is Otis Turner. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
