A clearly drawn and deeply interesting character
27 January 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of English people in India at a time when cholera has broken out. Miss Florence Turner plays the lead as a light-hearted rather flirtatious girl who seems coy enough when everything is pleasant, but who becomes a ministering angel when the cholera breaks out. We have seen this accomplished artiste to better advantage, yet she gives, in this interpretation, a clearly drawn and deeply interesting character. Mr. Costello plays opposite to her, a young British doctor who loves her. Mrs. Julia Swayne Gordon. Mr. Van Dyke Brooke and Mr. Robert Gaillord also have roles. The picture was written by W. A. Tremayne and produced by Van Dyke Brooke. It is a worthy offering. - The Moving Picture World, September 7, 1912
