A sarcophagus is sent to Professor Delaplace by his old friend Andrews, traveling to Egypt.

There is some foolishness in the picture's business
30 April 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A dream-story which takes an old professor back to the time when, in ancient Egypt, he was a king and great warrior and loved a woman whom it seems he treated coldly, though in the picture we don't see just why, for it isn't as clear as it might have been. Francis X. Bushman plays both the professor, whom he caricatures somewhat, and the Egyptian. Dolores Cassinelli plays the princess. Fred Wolf has a short role as assistant to the professor. There seem to be only four different backgrounds, but these, while amply suggestive of temples and palaces in Egypt, are plainly artificial, studio sets. There is some foolishness in the picture's business that detracts from its effect; but it has an interesting atmosphere and is a fair offering. - The Moving Picture World, January 18, 1913
