The Vitagraph people are in the very first rank

Author: deickemeyer from Chicago
11 February 2017

In nothing have the pictures shown more progress during the last year than in the way crowds are handled, especially at the moment of confusion and turmoil as in the sack of a city, and in the making of such scenes the Vitagraph people are in the very first rank. This picture tells a story of the beginning of the Sepoy rebellion, but it is not meant to be historical. A native prince (Harry Northrup), falls in love with an English girl (Lillian Walker), sister of an officer (James Morrison), and, because he is refused, incites the Sepoys to rise against the British. The town is sacked and the girl is carried away under the eyes of her frantic brother. An unexpected explosion throws all into confusion and the brother and sister manage to escape on one horse. The prince, with his men, give chase, but fall into the arms, so to speak, of a regiment of Highlanders. The prince is captured. Messrs. George Ober and George Lambert play officers of the regiment. The picture is full of good action throughout, and is a very good offering. Miss Marguerite Bertsch wrote the scenario, which was produced by Mr. Fred Thomson. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
