It would be difficult to conceive of a succession of stronger dramatic scenes
deickemeyer4 April 2015
A graphic reproduction of Jules Verne's famous story under the above title. It deals with a secret mission in Russia and must necessarily be dramatic. The scenes follow each other in such quick succession that they are almost bewildering, yet through them all the splendidly dramatic character of Strogoff stands out in sharp relief, so well is it acted. There are the thrilling scenes along the frontier, the attempted blinding with a hot sword, and finally the duel in the palace, with the closing tableau. It would be difficult to conceive of a succession of stronger dramatic scenes. They afford ample opportunity for excellent acting and the story is developed so naturally that one lives over the scenes with the characters. Along with good acting has gone good photography, the whole forming a satisfactory film. - The Moving Picture World, April 16, 1910
