Such a story demands no depth in acting
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This three-part melodrama can safely be termed big, not because the author, George Terwilliger has shown much originality or art, but because of the ingenuity with which he has spread old stuff over a big canvas in a new way, that is, to give a new impression. It was produced by Harry Myers, who has made us see a rather large area of action, mostly out-of-doors, and has given a feeling of loneliness to his scenes at the "old mill" or at the "ruin," Such a story demands no depth in acting and has been fairly played. A pretty fair offering of the sensational detective adventure kind. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
