When his daughter, the Princess Ameena, died, Rameses, the Egyptian Pharaoh, placed a necklace about her neck and swore that whoever took it thence should never rest in peace until it was returned. Some thousands of years later, Ameena's mummy was unpacked in the New York Art Museum and the necklace was discovered. The news of the discovery of the priceless relic reached the ears of a band of thieves and '"Diamond Mary" was dispatched to steal the necklace. She was successful in her mission, but the tremendous sensation caused by the theft made it absolutely impossible to dispose of the jewels in America. Accordingly Mary sailed for England, where she was joined by "English Jim," an accomplished criminal. Detective Imbert was engaged by the museum to conduct the search for the missing relic.

Plunges at once into an absorbing story
28 April 2018 | by See all my reviews

This three reel number plunges at once into an absorbing story. The first scene is in Egypt, 2,000 B.C. depicting the death of Princess Ameena. The next scene shows her as a mummy, still wearing the sacred necklace, in the Metropolitan Art Museum, New York. The necklace is stolen and the rest of the story has to do with an interesting chase through England, France and Italy to recover it. The plot itself could have been told in two reels, but the splendid views in Paris, Venice, Rome and other cities make the longer production desirable. Marc MacDermott, Miriam Nesbitt and Rex Hitchcock are in the cast. A fine scenic number. - The Moving Picture World, February 7, 1914
