The dramatic values of the story were not brought out at all adequately
14 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel production of the famous Dickens story, with Maude Fealey in the leading role. She gives us a charming impersonation, but the dramatic values of the story were not brought out at all adequately. The first reel was given up entirely to developing the atmosphere and setting, which it succeeded in doing very nicely, but in the second reel the incidents which should have been worked up strongly were almost glossed over, so that very little impression is made upon the observer. The banquet scene is fairly good, but the finding of Arthur in the prison was weakly led up to and the love interest lacked feeling. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
