A fascinating movie that is as compelling for what we do not see on the screen as for what we actually do see, It was produced by no less a person than Louis B. Mayer, and although the Alpha DVD runs only 60 minutes, it holds the attention, despite missing footage which makes the plot line not only hard to follow, but hard to get interested in. What we have here is obviously the Kodascope version.
I'd never heard of director Wilfrid North until this movie surfaced on Alpha. To my surprise, he directed no fewer than 101 movies between 1910 and 1922, although most of them were shorts. He then switched to acting until he died in 1935, although IMDb notes that he did try directing a sound film, namely Corianton (1931), a weird religious film which, if it now exists at all (which I doubt), was never theatrically released in either New York or Los Angeles.
