A pretty, graceful picture
25 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

A pretty, graceful picture made with little regard for the probabilities in the main thread of the story, but with plenty of action and no dragging. One can see in it, too, as in the eye-glasses left behind, an attempt to make it smooth and natural. The acting is acceptable rather than especially strong and the players make many of its scenes truly lovely. It will hold interest and with its general grace, perfect settings and life-like photography is a safe guess to an exhibitor. - The Moving Picture World, March 7, 1914
