An admirable rascal
20 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

We meet with Rupert Julian again in this two-reel production; he. with Lois Weber, plays a leading part, and it does it with good effect. He always makes an admirable rascal, appearing here as one of two thieves; the other, a woman who throws over her dishonest career and begins a new and better one. The story is good and the final scenes, at a fashionable hotel, show some pretty good judgment in selecting settings. - The Moving Picture World, December 6, 1913
