Not very fresh
13 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very speedy auto race is featured in this film. The slight plot hinges upon the girl's substitution for her brother, who was drugged before the race. The girl wins. The race feature is interesting, but the plot has been done many times and is, therefore, not very fresh to the observer. - The Moving Picture World, November 29, 1913
