We dare not call it entirely successful
31 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

There are many first-class things in this picture; it has a significant situation; it is beautifully acted and the photography is perfect. We dare not call it entirely successful, perhaps it has attempted to make clear things that are too subtle. That part, for instance, that deals with the relationship of the man and wife will be understood by all, after the first few scenes. But when we come to the burglar and the relationship of him and his wife with the tragically misunderstood woman, we get the picture's intention, but are not convinced. We don't believe that even a gentleman burglar would behave in just that way. It is an offering to please those who are discriminating, but even the gallery will like its story. - The Moving Picture World, March 8, 1913
