The villain plays up to his part most villainously
9 March 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Miss Story makes a pretty heroine for this very melodramatic love story. The early scenes are in New York. The heroine pictures very well her difficulty in choosing between the two lovers. One is a lieutenant and is ordered on duty in the Philippines, where he leads an infantry charge against a Gatling gun. The other stays at home and is accepted by the girl. He evidently doubts the depth of the lady's sentiment for he steals the hero's letter to her which says that he is on his way home. For some reason he also hates the flag. The hero returns and proves him a villain. He is compelled to kiss the flag and then is dismissed. The Gatling gun scene is thrilling. The villain plays up to his part most villainously and the picture is likely to be popular. - The Moving Picture World, July 22, 1911
