Beautifully reconstructed print but not much of a movie
9 October 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Henry B. Walthall (Michael Lanyard, also known as The Lone Wolf) struggles to get an important document from behind the German Lines to British Intelligence in New York with help from US operatives Mary Anderson (Cecilia Brooke) and Thornton Edwards (Lieutenant Thackery). However, they must evade German Intelligence agents headed by the dastardly Lon Chaney (Karl Eckstrom).

Made as anti-German propaganda during the war starting from a pulp fiction story. Lon Chaney fans may be disappointed since he mainly plays a secondary role.

The reconstructed print was mode from very good materials and is wonderfully tinted. Unfortunately, some of the titles are hard to read.
