Storyline

Grace is out riding on her horse when she has a bad fall and is picked up in an unconscious state by Antonio, the king of a band of gypsies in the neighborhood.

It is hardly convincing
20 February 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This is not of those stories whose main thread might be printed as the news of the day, but it is hardly convincing. As Mark Twain says, "Truth has an advantage over fiction, for fiction has to seem true." Society girls have fallen in love with gypsies; have run away and married them; have been ill-treated and come back to ask parental pardon. Perhaps the reason why this picture fails to convince more powerfully than it does lies in the way it is conducted. There is Pathe art in all of the scenes, but the quickness with which the pictures follow each other without the suggestion that days intervene makes the girl seem over-quick to fall in love and marry the gypsy; again, the stranger who befriends her seems over-quick to ask her to be his wife after her gypsy husband dies. It is interestingly acted. - The Moving Picture World, July 1, 1911
