The climax is reached by a far-fetched incident
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Very poor photography hinders this not very original picture in some of its scenes. In part, it would have been obscure anyway. The climax, which is the only part of it that has not been used many times, is reached by a far-fetched incident, and cannot be said to get over. - The Moving Picture World, June 21, 1913
