Carefulness in even small details
1 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very cleverly worked up picture dealing with bright detective work that brings a criminal to justice. This criminal has fixed things so that his crime will be traced to his friend, and it seems as though there can be no escape except by the culprit's confession. The detective finds it an easy one; he knows how. It has been made convincing by carefulness in even small details, and the interest has been heightened by weaving a love story in as a natural part of the whole. It is well acted by Lillian Gish, Charles West and Harry Carey, as the left-handed scoundrel. These are supported by a large cast. Finally, it is well photographed. The offering took strongly with the audience. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
