Certain to please the average audience
14 September 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An Essanay film which has some thrilling scenes and is certain to please the average audience wherever it is shown. There is life and action without bloodshed and the melodramatic features are made attractive rather than repulsive. It is impossible to invest this story in telling with the life that is in the picture. It seems almost as though the characters were going to speak, they do their parts so naturally, while the staging is remarkably good. The film was heartily applauded in two theaters where it was seen the past week, and everyone who attends motion picture shows knows that applause is somewhat rare.
