The Japanese setting is very attractive
8 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel offering, with the first scenes laid in Tokio and the second in America. The Japanese setting is very attractive and native characters appear in certain parts. The American lives with a Jap girl, Mirami, but leaves her to return to America. She follows him, dressed as a boy, and with an accomplice steals valuable papers from him. He shoots her, but the papers are burned by her companion. The story is by W.H. Clifford and is quite a successful offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 2, 1913
