The staging of the picture shows care
22 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A melodramatic story without many noticeable weaknesses. It has several situations that are well played; it is speedy in its action and it will hold well, will make a good release. The hero is a good man who is like a shorn lamb to every wind of accusation, until at the climax the villain for whose crime he had served one term in prison and for whose second crime he seems likely to serve another, is mortally wounded and confesses. The staging of the picture shows care and skill and it has been well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, October 4, 1913
