Should interest any audience by its series of strange occurrences
16 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Here is a story of two men who decided to commit suicide, but were interrupted in their mad desires by a series of incidents which might occur anywhere. They both go to the same hotel and take adjoining rooms. The noise of one falling, overcome with gas, prevents the other from carrying out his intentions of shooting himself. Then they decide to begin the battle over again, each encouraged by the sympathy of another in distress. The story is interesting because it suggests possibilities that are easily accepted as probable. It is the mutual helpfulness of two unfortunates as shown in this film that makes it worth while. In this quality the film is out of the ordinary and should interest any audience by its series of strange occurrences. - The Moving Picture World, May 6, 1911
