Storyline

Prof. Locksley, the famous hypnotic detective, unravels a mystery through his knowledge of the "Indian mind." The story tells of how a thug of the lowest order holds in his power a beautiful girl until Prof. Locksley gets control, and by a clever process of reasoning lands the thug behind prison bars. No detective picture hitherto produced can compare with this masterpiece of stage construction. The situations are thrilling and intense, and the Selig players have shown their versatility by so cleverly handling in a highly artistic way this really exceptional picture play.

The story is unusual and remarkably powerful
13 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

By using hypnotism, a weird, uncanny effect is given to an exciting, up-to-date detective story. The impression that it makes grips the spectator in a peculiar way, but grips him strongly. It claims to introduce the methods of "Prof. Locksley, the hypnotist detective." This is probably only a fiction: it is to be hoped it is, for, if the detective claims to use suggestion in hypnosis thus, he is a quack. However, the story is unusual and remarkably powerful. So out-of-the- ordinary is it that it stands out from all other pictures of this kind. It is not instructive, but misleading, much art is, even in such magazines as charge thirty-five cents a copy. The picture is, however, a star number without any doubt. It will be talked about and it will draw. - The Moving Picture World, November 18, 1911
