Functional would be the best way to describe this one reel melodrama. The vengeful Hindoo/u (the James Young, director of "Hearts in Exile"?) got up in boot polish and a turban, plans on avenging himself on Maurice Costello's family, somewhere East of Suez.
Chief interest is in seeing the distinguished cast early in their careers. Hard to reconcile the two children (Helen keeps on standing in front of the taller Dolores, blocking our view) with the glamorous stars of the 1920s Michael Curtiz movies.
Compositions are often awkward and the playing is unremarkable, outside of Young's unrelenting hamming. Hard enough to see any of these one reelers - so let's not be greedy!
