A fairly successful rendering
16 March 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A fairly successful rendering of the historic party which dumped the cargo of tea into Boston Harbor a century or so ago. Something has been added to the original story to make it somewhat romantic, but perhaps has added to its human interest. On the whole it is a good film, with the exception of one or two scenes which are too dark. In fact, in a number of places the photography is poor and leaves much to the imagination. The action is spirited, however, and the original story is followed closely enough to make it reasonably clear what it means. It received some vigorous applause in one theater, but was passed in silence in another. -- The Moving Picture World, November 28, 1908
