We commend the dash and suspense
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The situation with which this picture opens is so old that one is astonished at seeing it. The gambler, who, somehow, has foreseen the need of having the combination of the safe in the express office, cheats stolen money away from the express man, brother of the girl he loves, in order to return it to the safe. We commend the dash and suspense which develops as the action near its climax. It is acted in a competent though commonplace way. There is much to commend also in the backgrounds and photography. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
