Where did she find a pigeon so intelligent?
19 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A melodramatic newspaper love story, of a somewhat dime novel flavor. The reporter, captured, is helped by the girl who leads the gang. He sends carrier pigeons to his office, which squares well with the story. But the inference is that the girl, in summoning assistance, sends to the office one of her own carrier pigeons. Just where did she find a pigeon so intelligent that it could be sent at will? The knowledge would be extremely valuable. There is plenty of action in the story, and heart interest is supplied by the heart of the maid responding to the heart of the man, as it was in days of yore. - The Moving Picture World, September 17, 1910
