Very little dramatic color has been added
4 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Illustrating Browning's well-known poem. This picture is commendable, especially to those who have not seen a former version o£ it made by an independent company, which was much better in every way. In this the story is clear and told with a measure of effectiveness, but very little dramatic color has been added by the adapter and producer. The character of the little lame child which in the former picture, little Marie Eline, "the Thanhouser kid," filled with human significance, has been reduced to an empty figure in this picture. At times its producer, George Lessey, has not escaped a certain staginess. The photography is fair. - The Moving Picture World, September 6, 1913
