The picture has the qualities of the usual picture of this kind
29 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A sensational story of some European republic, in which an anarchistic plot to kill a president is utilized as the background of a love story, in which the chief of the secret service and the abused wife of the anarchist figure in the principal roles. The detective, in disguise, uncovers the plot and takes steps to frustrate it. In the end the anarchist is killed and the detective marries the woman. The picture has the qualities of the usual picture of this kind; it is neither emotional nor convincing, but furnishes a feeling of suspense. The story is fairly well woven and the figures are distinctly drawn. - The Moving Picture World, April 27, 1912
