A dog is a factor in a big situation
23 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a story of a business intrigue, in which a rival corporation president tries by the aid o£ burglarious methods and assistants to obtain a secret formula. The story turns on this point, Alice Joyce has the part of the secretary of a rubber company's president, and is besides in love with the son of her employer. One of the office scenes may suggest to some that her costume was rather pretentious for a business woman. However, this is immaterial, and does not affect the dramatic qualities of the picture, which will hold. Tom Moore as the son of the president does good work. George Middleton, as the president of the successful company, looks the part. The photography is excellent. A dog is a factor in a big situation, but his presence did not strengthen it, as the animal did not pursue the course that would be followed by a real dog whose mistress was being strapped into a chair. - The Moving Picture World, January 11, 1913
