So bold and so successful a step
4 September 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In conception, execution, and setting it stands out head and shoulders above any previous "Imp," and we have seen quite a few. Staged and photographed on the magnificent country estate of one of New York's multimillionaires, the photographer has done justice to the splendid opportunity. The actors were specially selected for their parts, which they performed with good taste. We learned that the leading lady, a new Imp favorite, by the way, was the author of the scenario, and she is entitled to praise for its arrangement and for the part she played. Altogether the picture marks such a distinct departure from the usual thing that we hope the Imp will persevere in the direction in which they have taken so sudden, so bold and so successful a step. - The Moving Picture World, October 8, 1910
