We notice evidences of skill and experience in this picture
18 March 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The one quality that marks the work of an experienced maker from that of others is a feeling for what is significant. We notice evidences of skill and experience in this picture, but not so markedly as in some by this company. Yet so thrilling and so well made is the story that it will draw the audience forward, make it swallow the scenes with its eyes, so to speak. The scenario behind it is unusually strong for a war time picture. It, as a human tale, is a long advance over "The Battle," by the same company, and the producer has made it far more thrilling than that picture, although only a squad is seen fighting. A very desirable offering. - The Moving Picture World, December 7, 1912
