More than skillful; it is artistic
17 September 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Will Davis has produced a picture of two reels that will reflect credit both on himself and his company. His work is more than skillful; it is artistic. There are cohesiveness and continuity; fine costumes and settings. Above all, there is a story that will hold throughout. In the second reel there are many situations that will thrill, and they will do so by reason of the strength of the story itself, which is dramatic and in no wise spectacular. One of the scenes especially worthy of mention is of the courtroom. The trial is portrayed with unusual effectiveness. There are flashes to the judge, to the prisoner, to the jury, to the spectators, to the lawyer for the defense. Mary Alden does splendid work in her characterization of the wife who foolishly believes herself neglected. Messrs. Newton. Holmes and Hopkins also contribute to the effectiveness of the picture. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
