All these hypnotism pictures have no educational value
14 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The well-known Prof. Locksley, in this picture, unravels another mystery and recovers gems stolen by the valet. He finds that this valet had been studying hypnotism and uses suggestion to force a confession. We hardly need to point out that all these hypnotism pictures have no educational value. They are good stories. This one is well constructed. The characters are very wisely chosen and act well. The sets and all the ancillary business aside from the main story, are as natural as can be. The story is so well conducted that it convinces and gets a firm grip on the attention. The camera work is excellent. Those two stable servants as well as that cook could hardly have been better. - The Moving Picture World, May 25, 1912
