First-rate effect by the actor playing the rascal
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a very commendable film. Its theme is essentially dramatic, being that in which a man leads a double life and possesses, like Jekyll and Hyde, a double personality by virtue, however, not of transforming his entire body, but only the muscles of his face. This is carried away with first-rate effect by the actor playing the rascal. At the denouement. as he is about to marry the heroine, he loses control of the muscles of his face and his real character is revealed. The film will carry wherever it is shown. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
