The race fails to convince very strongly
13 July 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A clearly defined type of motion picture thriller. We are shown in one place some children playing with an infernal machine; they think it a clock. It is getting pretty close to the explosion time before any one discovers that a drunken man's plot has gone wrong, and now follows the dramatic race to reach the house of the poor woman in time to save her and her children. There is some noticeable slackening in the plot's workings, due to the fact that the children carried home the clock (it was inside of the turkey) yet it seems a very long race for the man trying to save them. He rides on a motorcycle, an automobile, and he runs. Children such as were shown couldn't travel far on foot, so the race fails to convince very strongly. It will make a very fair offering. - The Moving Picture World, February 8, 1913
