The trouble lies in the man's acting
28 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A picture taken from Sir Gilbert Parker's story, "The Lane That Has No Turning." There is much in the offering to commend it. Charles Sutton, as the hunchback seigneur, and more especially Laura Sawyer, as his wife, put color and imagination into their parts. Benjamin Wilson, as Fournel, and James Gordon, as Tardif, with the others who have small roles, do commendable work. The story is clear, except the cause of Fournel's burning of the will; the trouble lies in the man's acting in what immediately preceded it. The scenario, by the famous author, is weak and unconvincing. The producer is J. Searle Dawley. There is some excellent photography. A very fair offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
