Herbert E. Morgan has written a good story
11 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This excellent offering is of Americans and its opening scenes are on the other side; it ends as the ship reaches New York. Augustus Phillips plays the lead, as a U.S. customs agent in London who has just been promoted and is coming back home. Edna Flugrath plays the American girl visiting Europe with whom he is in love and who with her aunt (Mrs. Wm. Bechtel) is also on her way home. George Lessey plays a smuggler who is planning to bring in an invoice of diamonds. Robert Brower plays a U.S. consul. The young customs agent has been warned of the smuggler's intention. These two with the girl and her aunt are on the same ship. The agent has to keep his eye on the smuggler and make love to the girl at the same time. He gets both the smuggler and the girl. Herbert E. Morgan has written a good story; but the scenes add greatly to its interest. Those on the ship and in New York harbor are fine. It makes a desirable offering. - The Moving Picture World, October 5, 1912
