The film is exciting and is representative of the people

Here is a picture of war in the desert. It is supposed to represent scenes from the fight of the English with the Mad Mahdi. The English general is captured and Mohammed Ahmed commands him to send for his daughter, Flower, whom he wishes to make one of his wives. Ahmed sends for her, however, in her father's name. She and her sisters come, but Flower is armed. When admitted to her father's cell she forces a veiled woman to change clothes with her. She easily passes the guard and, mounting a horse, gallops wildly across the desert for aid. She meets a regiment of Scotch Highlanders. They go with her and arrive just as Ahmed is battering down the door of the general's cell to get at him and his daughter. The film is exciting and is representative of the people about whom the story is woven. - The Moving Picture World, September 16, 1911
