Enough dramatic opportunity for half a dozen good pictures

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A picture of feudal times, representing a handsome young wife torn from her husband for the amusement of a duke who was in the depths of boredom. The outraged husband seeks a monastery. The woman longs for her child until she goes insane and dies. The duke, realizing the outrage he has committed, attempts to commit suicide, but the cross on the dagger suggests another course, and he enters the same monastery as the outraged husband. They meet, and are about to fly at each other, but are prevented by the sanctity of the place. Here is enough dramatic opportunity for half a dozen good pictures, almost; yet they are all crowded into one, and a mighty interesting succession of scenes it makes, too. The audience will not applaud. The picture is too serious; but they enjoy it none the less, and manifest their appreciation plainly enough. The actors have taken full advantage of the opportunity presented them and that, with the excellent photography, combine to make a satisfactory picture. - The Moving Picture World, February 12, 1910
