The crumbling walls of the old Turkish prison are not strong enough to hold the stalwart young American and he soon makes his escape. He is pursued by an armed guard, and takes refuge in the courtyard of the Pasha's palace.

And the Traveling Man
28 September 2009 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

An American in some Oriental country pays for a ticket for an elderly man and is made a house guest -- but his host is thrown in jail and the American along with him. Fortunately, he has a jack knife, which is more than up to the task of sawing through the bars of his jail cell. In escaping, however, he goes through a harem -- in popular fiction all paths lead through harems -- where he is succored by the Pasha's beautiful daughter.

This Thanhousder production has the typical good but stolid composition of the studio. The costumes are excellent and the sets look pretty good until someone bumps into them and they shimmy like cardboard. However, the acting in this one is a tad below average for Thanhouser, being a little stagy.
