It is a slight, romantic picture with a dramatic ending
19 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There is an old folklore story in which we always find the brave adventurer, or the princess in distress, helping some old hag who is in difficulty, only to find in her a goddess or a fairy who can return the favor. Miss Von Trump, in this picture, plays a girl who is distressed by a bully, Mr. Richardson. She helps a wandering gypsy. A lone prospector (Mr. Kerrigan) also helps the gypsy. This gypsy in return brings the hero to discomfort the villain and starts a love story. It is a slight, romantic picture with a dramatic ending, and is well acted and well photographed. It has a pleasing quality. - The Moving Picture World, June 1, 1912
